Biographical Details

Brian Kelly is UK Web Focus - a JISC-funded post which provides advice for the UK HE and FE communities on Web developments. Brian is based at UKOLN (UK Office For Library and Information Networking) at the University of Bath.

Brian has been involved in Web developments since early 1993. At that time he was the Information Officer in the Computing Service, University of Leeds. The University of Leeds adopted the Web at an early date and was using the Web for marketing purposes in 1993 (although attempts to make the University prospectus available on the Web back then were not successful due to internal politics).

He moved to UKOLN in 1996. His activities include monitoring the latest Web developments and dissemination of news of Web developments and of best practices. Brian organises an annual 3 day Institutional Web Management event which is aimed at members of Institutional Web Management teams.
