About

I am a library director working in higher education.

I write mainly to reflect on professional practice for CPD, and to better understand library and education work. I believe in big tent librarianship.

My pronouns are he/him.

An unordered list of some of my interests:

  • The role of libraries in supporting widening access and participation in higher education, and improving outcomes and attainment.
  • How new technologies affect and shape user experience of systems and physical spaces in education.
  • Postmodern trends in┬álibrary and information science, especially the impact of the web on information organisation.
  • Critical theories applied to library and education practice, particularly┬ápostmodern and deconstructive approaches.
  • Cycling. I cycle in London and elsewhere and am a randonneur. I┬ámostly cycle fixed wheel.
