Appointment of Andrew Gray
I happily started at LSHTM in late December 2010 and for the next 2 years will be setting up, launching and establishing a Repository here at LSHTM. The 2008 RAE results placed LSHTM at number 3 in the UK for research and my goal is to ensure that the repository promotes, shares and preserves this important intellectual knowledge to as wide an audience as possible.
I have worked within academic libraries for roughly 10 years in a variety of posts including Kultur project officer at University of the Arts where I established their own repository UAL Research Online. I am keen advocate of Open Access and firmly believe that Libraries and Librarians are essential in enabling society to engage meaningfully with the digital world.
