This is the blog of Emma Cragg. Business information librarian, amateur photographer, film fan and organiser of Quiff Comp.
I graduated in 2006 from Northumbria University’s Masters in Information and Library Management programme. The same year I left the north east (somewhat reluctantly) to pursue my career as a librarian where the majority of jobs seemed to be, in the south.
After brief periods in posts as bibliographic and information assistants at the University of Oxford I moved on to become Senior Information Librarian in the Sainsbury Library at the Saïd Business School in January 2009. After a little over a year there I realised it was time to get out of Oxford before I woke up and found 20 years had passed. I am now Academic Support Librarian for Business and Management at the University of Warwick.
Where the title comes from
“Those who are comfortable using a range of digital media and are open to the changes that digitisation brings to society.”
By this definition I am a digitalist. Are you?
As a librarian I am constantly aware of the need to be open to the changes that digitisation is bringing to our profession. Thankfully it’s something that I am interested in and you might say passionate about so keeping up to date with the changes comes easily to me. This is my blog about life in libraries in the digital age.
