Welcome to the blog of Sarah Wolfenden. I am a chartered academic librarian from South Yorkshire and have worked in Further and Higher Education 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, providing student and staff support with digital and information literacy.
I am passionate about helping people develop and learn. My current professional interests are educational development, information literacy, social media, lifelong learning, well-being and coaching.
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and hold an MA in Library and Information Science from UCL. 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.

This blog was initially set up to take part in a professional development programme called CPD23 and has now become a general recording, sharing and reflecting tool for all library related activities, topics and events I am involved in. Any comments I make are my own personal views and in no way associated with my employer or any other organisation.
