About

I am a library director working in higher education. I write mainly to reflect on professional practice about and as 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 equity and widening participation in higher education, and improving outcomes and attainment.
  • Working-class lived experiences of higher education and subjectivities.
  • Critical theories, of various traditions, applied to library and education practice.
  • Postmodern trends in library and information theory and practice, especially the impact of the web on information organisation.
  • Cycling. I cycle in London and elsewhere and am a randonneur / audax cyclist. I mostly cycle fixed wheel.
