Biography and Irish Studies research
I am currently working at QUB Library as part of the Humanities team, I am the Subject Librarian for the School of History, with responsibility for managing Special Collections. Before taking up my current post at QUB, I was Project Manager of NIPR (Northern Ireland Publications Resource), responsible for establishing a scheme, now funded by DCAL, to collect, preserve and provide access to materials published in Northern Ireland. I also worked as Project Officer with RASCAL, with responsibility for auditing special collections held in institutions through out Northern Ireland. RASCAL is a web based database of special collections in Northern Ireland. Prior to these activities I was a rare books cataloguer at QUB.
My current professional interests include providing the widest possible access to research materials relating to the field of Irish studies here and abroad.
