I am Lecturer in Information Science, and course Director for the MSc in Information and Library Studies.
My research interests encompass issues around information law and ethics, including intellectual freedom, and freedom of expression, freedom of access to information, and the philosophy of information. I have also extensively researched around public library policy and development in the UK.
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 2017
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).
