Welcome to the blog of Sarah Wolfenden. I am a chartered academic librarian from South Yorkshire and have worked in libraries, albeit in and around London, since 2004. I became a professionally qualified librarian in 2008 and am currently working as a Subject Liaison Librarian in a London University.
Throughout my career I have been actively involved in CILIP Academic and Research Libraries (ARLG) London and South East, Special Libraries Association (SLA) Europe and London Information and Knowledge Exchange (LIKE) committees. My involvement with SLA Europe stems from winning the Leadership and Management/SLA Europe sponsored Early Career Conference Award in 2012.
My experience covers further education, higher education, and higher education within further education, with a background in retail and customer service. My current professional interests are information literacy, social media, lifelong learning, and integrating empathy and mindfulness into both education and the workplace.
