I am Lecturer and course Director for the MSc in Information and Library Studies. I had a decade of work experience in public libraries before moving to academic life in 2001.
My research interests encompass issues around information and library policy, including information ethics, intellectual freedom, and freedom of expression, and the philosophy of information.
I am author of The Public Library (Facet, 2009) and the forthcoming work, Information Ethics: reflection and practice, which will be published by Facet in late 2016
I was Editor of Library Review between 2006-2011 as well as co-author of Librarianship: an introduction (2008), and A Handbook of Ethical Practice (2007).
