About me

Emma is the Information Skills Librarian at UEA (University of East Anglia), Norwich. She holds an MSt and PhD in literary theory and an MSc in Information and Library Management, and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Emma’s chief research interests are information literacy, learning development and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

In 2011 she was seconded to a fellowship at Wolfson College, Cambridge, to develop ‘A New Curriculum for Information Literacy’ in collaboration with Dr Jane Secker of City University. Since then she has jointly edited two books and is currently writing a third. In June 2015 she became Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Information Literacy.

She spends an unfeasible amount of time on trains and drinks far too much espresso.
