The Job I do

My main role is as editor of Ariadne Magazine which is designed principally for information professionals in archives, libraries and museums in all sectors, and also for interested lay people both in and beyond the Higher Education community. Its main geographic focus is the UK, but it is widely read in North America and worldwide.

I manage and edit the content destined for the UKOLN Newsfeed as well as commission and edit the material that is published in UKOLN news features.

I also provide editorial support in a number of different contexts for the benefit of UKOLN colleagues as well as further afield in more formal operations including TechWatch reports for Jisc Observatory.
