About Me

NHS Wales e-Library and Knowledge Services Manager

I began my library career at the Imperial War Museum where I digitised First World War Trench Journals and cared for the historical journal collections. I made the move to the health sector and health librarianship in 2013 working for the Royal College of Nursing first in customer services then the collection development team where I was responsible for managing the electronic resources for the membership and developing new services such as patron driven acquisition.

Since 2017, I have worked here at the NHS Wales e-Library, firstly as Librarian Specialist and now as e-Library and Knowledge Services Manager. I am responsible for the strategic direction of the e-Library, evaluating and procuring national e-resources, budget management and Chairing the e-Library Champions Group made up of user representatives who help to inform the e-Library collection and purchase of e-resources. A key success since joining the team is when the service was awarded £10 million over three years to procure new e-resources to support the learning, research and development of NHS Wales. Over the next three years we plan to grow our collections and expand our service offer to NHS Wales and users of the NHS Wales e-Library – watch this space for our three year plan coming soon!
