Please note that I am currently seconded to the institutional repository team as ORCA REF Project Manager and I am also providing support for Open Access publishing and self-archiving.

This includes collection development, research skills/information literacy teaching and enquiry work as well as updating the subject resources web pages, Information Resources for European Languages, Translation and Politics and Information Resources for Psychology.
