In no particular order: Development of new public Web presence Copyright and licencing guidance Launch of ebrary (with Acquisitions Team; Chris L.) A new approach [...]

Congratulations to Paul Stainthorp, who was appointed to the post of E-Resources Librarian on the 13th October. This is a three year secondment, and Paul will be working with key staff within L+LR and the wider University, to manage this significant resource to best effect.
