My main teaching interest is the management of library and information services. I apply this to different sectors including academic and research libraries, business information services, health libraries, public libraries, and archives. I also encourage students with their own professional development, and self management, so that they can progress their careers, and exploit the opportunities that are available to them. Activities to support personal and professional development are integrated into teaching e.g. reflective practice. My work with students on reflective practice has led to research disseminated in academic journals and at international conferences.
