New job!!!

I have an announcement to make: I am leaving the law library sector and starting a brand new job! As of January, I will be the Research and Information Officer for Brake, the road safety charity. I am hugely excited about this new role. It’ll be a big change for me: no more corporate law! […]

BIALL/NetIKX Seminar: The Future of Copyright

Back in May I attended a seminar jointly run by BIALL and NetIKX, on “The Future of Copyright”.
