Stephen Brooks

Product manager


My role is focused around developing the Historical Texts and Journal Archives platforms, in terms of raising awareness and engagement of the current services and through strategic planning to ensure that they remain relevant to the needs of users, to keep pace with changing technologies and behaviours and to identify opportunities for Jisc to build upon these foundations to extend its support for research and education.


I have many years experience working in product management and leadership roles within the commercial publishing sector, where I was responsible for delivering online humanities products to a global market. My educational background is in the history of English and related Germanic languages and I am interested in how technology makes possible new forms of scholarly enquiry.
