I provide specialist support for the learning and teaching activities of Yr Athrofa (Institute of Education) in Swansea. As part of the Academic Liaison Team I develop curriculum focused digital and information literacy skills, provide resources support and advice for the design, planning, validation, delivery and review of Yr Athrofa courses and programmes.
I support students and staff in the use of library resources including the use of academic databases, accessing online resources, search skills and literature searching via taught sessions, one-to-one appointments, drop-in or email.
I am also responsible for developing communication and links between UWTSD libraries and those of our partner colleges.
After completing my MA in Library and Information Studies, I began my professional career as an Assistant Librarian at the University of Reading. After five years I moved to Swansea as a Senior Assistant Librarian. Following a break to focus on family life, I returned to work in Swansea Metropolitan University (now UWTSD) in 2009, as a Subject Librarian for business programmes. In 2015, I moved to Townhill campus to support the education programmes based there. In 2017, I became an Academic Liaison Librarian, and now have responsibility for education programmes based in SA1
My professional interests include advocacy and engagement, marketing and social media, literacies and learning.
