I am about to move to Malta in two weeks to teach Library, Information and Archival studies. This is an exciting time of change. Previously I coordinated and worked on several research projects in the area of digital libraries (DELOS, DIGMAP), user studies (DiSCmap, Europeana focus group study), long term preservation (POCOS, KEEP, SHAMAN) and served regularly as an evaluator for the EC and national funding bodies. I enjoy working with young researchers - and putting together schools such as the forthcoming Policies and Practices in Access to Digital Archives which will be held in Budapest in July 2012. I am expecting a book on user studies to be published in May 2012 by Facet Publishing.
