About this blog

The aim of this blog is to keep you up-to-date with all that is happening with electronic resources here in the library, from new resources and trials of resources, to access problems and things you need to know about to get the most out of our electronic resources.

About the author: Sarah Taylor BA (Hons) MPhil PgDipLIM MCLIP

I’m an Electronic Resources Librarian with a passion. We live in the information age, and I have made it my goal in life to make sure that you are able to access everything you need to get on with your research. I also look after the University of Bolton Institutional Repository.

I’ve worked in higher education libraries since 2001, working first at the Royal Northern College of Music then at Manchester Metropolitan University. My first degree was undertaken Bretton Hall College of the University of Leeds, my MPhil at the University of Leeds and my PgDip in Library and Information Management at Manchester Metropolitan University, which I passed with Distinction in 2005. I gained Chartered Membership of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) in 2007.  Parts of my MPhil thesis have been published in Brio, the journal of the UK and Ireland branch of the International Association of Music Libraries, and as a chapter in Cowgill, R. and Holman, P. (Eds.), Music in the British provinces, 1690-1914. Aldershot: Ashgate, 2007.

Besides access to resources, my other two passions in life are my family (I have two daughters) and music, but don’t worry, I am not about to burst into song in the middle of the library!
