Christine Irving joins the DREaM project team

Christine Irving

We are pleased to introduce readers of the LIS Research Coalition blog to Christine Irving. Christine has joined Hazel Hall’s team in Edinburgh to help with the forthcoming three linked DREaM project workshops.

Christine has written a few words of introduction:

I’m delighted to be involved in assisting with the organising of the workshops. They are a great opportunity for LIS professionals to develop their research skills and join the LIS research community .

As a person who always likes to ask questions, seek out information and share knowledge, my LIS research skills were developed through an Information Management degree at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh. This then led to LIS research project work and a subsequent career. I am currently working freelance and am about to start writing a book about information literacy in the workplace, public libraries and lifelong learning. This is based upon my research work as Researcher/Project Officer on the Scottish Information Literacy Project.

I am a member of several CILIP special interest groups. These include the Library and Information Research Group (LIRG) of which I am the current secretary. I am also part of the events team which organises and delivers a range of research workshops. LIRG fully supports the work of the LIS Research Coalition and it’s great to strengthen that connection with my involvement with the DREaM project.

I look forward to working with the DREaM project, to seeing the workshops take place and to meeting all the workshop participants.
