I am currently Library Manager at Clyde & Co, an international law firm. I have a broad range of responsibilities, with the main focus being the management of the physical library space and print collections across the firm’s offices in England. During my career I have worked in the libraries of universities and professional associations, giving me experience of most of the different types of organisations BIALL members work in.
I first volunteered for a BIALL committee in the autumn of 2006, joining the then Legal Information Group. Having acted as liaison to LexisNexis, I took over as chair of LIG, and served a full term, notably introducing the supplier survey and award, and Q&A sessions with suppliers at the BIALL conference. I am about to complete a four-year term on BIALL Council, and I am looking forward to drawing on the lessons of ten years of BIALL activity in the role of Honorary Secretary.
Interesting fact/talent: I regularly compete in national-level competitions in board games and puzzle-solving.
