Role

I am responsible for areas of work that address how to effectively find resources that are relevant to learning, teaching and research. The resources in question may be analogue or digital and the challenge is not only to effectively provide ways of discovering those resources through the use of online services, but also to ensure that they remain discoverable and sustainable over time.

Jisc provides a number of national resource discovery services, including Copac, Archives Hub, Zetoc and SUNCAT. I oversee these services and work closely with sector representatives and strategic partner organisations to ensure that UK universities and colleges have effective access to the information that they need.
