I am Collection Development Manager at the University of Manchester Library where I lead the Collection Development & Management Team. My approach involves gathering all possible relevant data about our collections and users, and putting it to good, automated use, (combined with human/academic expertise where appropriate) in support of dynamic techniques of content curation. I am particularly interested in the ways the Library can support digital humanities research. In my spare time I'm researching my PhD project on metaphor in 17thC Quaker writings (with a digital humanities aspect, naturally). I'm honorary Quaker chaplain to Manchester's universities.
