My role centres around library and scholarly outreach, support and training for institutions' purchased resources. Helping to increase awareness and deepen engagement with digital primary sources is a key focus for the Academic Outreach team but also sits at the heart of Adam Matthew's mission. I work closely with scholars and librarians to help utilise these collections to enrich their academic research and teaching as well as providing bespoke support to maximise value on acquisitions.

My favourite Adam Matthew resource is Mass Observation Online. Having so many diaries on everyday life in 20th century Britain brought together like this is unprecedented and is not only personal and enlightening but provides a unique source for twentieth century social historians.
