I worked as a multimedia developer before moving into web design and development as the internet became more widely accessible in the mid to late 90’s. Working as part of the eServices Integration Group at the University of Hull, I managed and developed the University Web Content Management System (CMS). This involved working with departments to design and deliver web content using XML and XSL through an open source Java-based CMS.
When Library and IT services at The University of Hull were split, I took up the position of eEngagement Manager in Library and Learning Innovation and later held the position of Library Services Manager through a two and half year redevelopment of the library building.
I now holds the position of Student Engagement Manager in Library and Learning Innovation, providing a strategic lead and project management on student engagement activity. Managing a small team I works across Customers Services, Information Services and Graduate Development Services in a busy and varied role spanning both online and physical engagement. It provides the opportunity to use my complementary knowledge of Library and IT Services to ensure that students inform service design and development at the Brynmor Jones Library.
