Senior Librarian

'You are simultaneously looking inwards and outwards: you have to know what is going on inside the LMA as a whole, and how these changes impact on readers, and also how requirements coming in from our readers shape our collections.'

'Finding interesting and unusual objects in the archive is something which makes the job interesting.'
