I've been working in libraries for over fifteen years and I have a background in the visual arts, with an MA (Hons) in Fine Art and History of Art and an MA in Fine Art. I also have a Postgraduate Diploma in Library and Information Studies. Most of my professional career has been in art and design libraries, so I’m very excited to now be supporting Humanities at RHUL.

I can help you find the most relevant and suitable information for your studies or research, develop your search strategies, and build your skills in evaluating and synthesising information. I can also help you with referencing. You are welcome to email me or to book an online appointment. I work Thursdays and Fridays.
