SCONUL is the Standing Conference of National and University Librarians. SCONUL Focus online is an open access publication. Vol.69 is dedicated to articles by librarians engaged in various aspects of research. My line-manager suggested I should contribute something – this is it.
ABSTRACT: I contend that the combination of librarianship with research is beneficial both on a personal level and to the library and institution, but that the addition of a third element – pedagogy – brings even stronger benefits.
Hopefully the title of my latest paper will attract some interest (though I fear there may be disappointment in some quarters)! Since I like to retain a little mystery, I’m not going to tell you what it’s about – you’ll have to wait until it’s published. However, the keywords will give you a clue. The issue apparently went to press today.
Yours, mysteriously ….
I'm a musicologist disguised as a librarian. I'm qualified in music, librarianship and education. I began this blog when I was studying for my PGCert in Learning & Teaching in Higher Arts Education, and I'm now using it for CPD. I'm a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Midweek I am continuing the research I commenced as PI for an AHRC-funded research network @ClaimedStatHall – early legal deposit music. Off-duty I'm hard-wired into my sewing machine!
