Acerca de Mim
I started out as a librarian - after a Traineeship at The British Library I worked there as a Cataloguer. I left to become Deputy Systems Manager at the Science Museum. I movrd into academia as a lecturer in library and information studies at Leeds Polytechnic and later at Loughborough University. I also taught at the Royal School of Librarianship in Copenhagen and the School of Information Management at Victoria University of Wellington.

My last academic post was at Strathclyde University in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences, where I taught information management and librianship courses for fifteen years until retiring in 2015. I am a member of CILIP (the professional association for librarians in the UK).

I read mainly science fiction (but will stray outside the genre) and play all types of boardgames. I was a member of the International Gamers Awards Historical Simulations Committee. I am a member of the British Science Fiction Association joining a long, long time ago ....
