2018 Round-Up: the Scholar-Librarian

via 2018 Round-Up: the Scholar-Librarian

Annual Review, 2018

St Pauls SilhouetteI am a Performing Arts Librarian 3.5 days a week, and a Postdoctoral Researcher 1.5 days a week.  In this self-imposed annual review, I’m not listing routine activities conducted in either capacity; it goes without saying that I’ve answered queries, catalogued, delivered library research training to a number of different class groups, attended meetings, and pursued research-related activities and fieldwork.

From September 2017 to September 2018, I was the AHRC-funded Principal Investigator for a new research network, the Claimed From Stationers’ Hall music research project.  Since then, I have continued to conduct research and network with the various scholars and libraries involved with this project, and in the new year shall be pursuing further grant-funding in order to extend the reach of the project.

As someone who continually asks themselves, “Am I doing enough?”, I feel that even I can be reasonably content with this year’s outputs!
