I joined Jisc Collections in 2013. My role involves the implementation of work flow processes for management and the auditing of all contracts and licences for consistency and adherence to models. I manage production of contracts for all outsourced suppliers, the Journal Usage Statistics Portal (JUSP) and small medium publishers. I negotiate on business information publishers and work closely with the Business Librarians Association. I also manage the operational planning, risk registers and service management frameworks for our digital resources directorate.
With a 20-year background in libraries and information management, I worked for the last ten years at Grant Thornton UK LLP managing the information centre, and then as contracts and negotiation manager for all UK online publishing and information databases.
