I teach a wide range of computing applications and theory for librarians, including library system and database design, networking and use of the Internet, systems analysis, systems management and administration, programming, online searching, and both general and library-specific software applications, not only for the MSc but also for the Diploma/MA programmes in Library Studies, Archive Studies, and Records &Archives Management (International). I also teach a range of topics on the undergraduate programme in Information Management including a module on web design and management.
In the past, in the other half of my time I have done part-time work in the College Library as a staff and user trainer in IT, and as a systems jack-of-all-trades; consultancy and training for various companies; contract research; and additional teaching in the School. I was also responsible for the initial development of the School's web pages - for my sins :-)
I also act as Henry Morley Computer Cluster Manager, departmental computer rep, and have departmental responsibilities for health and safety and data protection activities.
My main interests lie in quality systems (especially in libraries) and the Internet. I have run external courses for a wide range of bodies, such as those on making information available on the Internet and quality systems and quality assurance (for Aslib), introductions to Internetworking and ISO9000 for Libraries (for the 2nd European Universities' Summer School), and similar courses for the Portuguese Library Association, the DTI and other colleges such as LHSTM.
Most recent writings include a new edition of a book for Aslib's "Know How Guide" series on finding information on the Internet, and a report on the People's Network ICT skills, training needs and strategies in public library authorities.
