#Citylis student, former Librarian and fan of Comics, Anime and Manga.
I have just gone back to school to study a MA Library Science at City University and am also taking an evening class in Japanese.
I have a background of working in Academic Libraries. I joined Croydon College Library as a Learning Resources Assistant in 2001 and held many different titles until I was made redundant in late 2014.
I have a BA in History and Classics, am ACLIP Certified, experienced in Cataloguing and Classification (MARC21 and DDC) and also a qualified teacher in the FE Sector (Cert Ed).
Having had some time out after redundancy I am looking to get back into work as well as my study, and would be interested in working in Academic Libraries, Museums or Archives.
I have a background of working with eResources and Library systems and am interested these areas as well as the impact of technology on learning and Libraries.
In my spare time I’m holding down the demanding job of father to two demanding children Emily (11) and Ruby (5), but when I do get free time I like reading Manga (Naruto, Bleach, Dragonball, One Punch Man to name a few) and watching Anime. I love Star Trek and Star Wars although I decline to choose one over the other.
I also enjoy a bit of photography and you can see my phots from Flickr shown on this blog.
