Lesley English

Research overview

As Library Engagement Manager I lead on Library engagement with our diverse communities; from academic staff and Professional Services staff across campus and at partner institutions, with students and the Students Union, staff and student networks and the wider community across Lancaster and Morecambe.

As part of the role I lead in areas of measuring impact and value across the Library and Learning Development.

I also manage the Faculty Librarian team, the key interface between the faculties and departments and the Library.  The team teach and advise students with a focus on information literacy, with teaching both embedded into the curriculum and through the central Library and Information Skills programme, and individual appointments available (currently online).  They also work with academic staff to select and promote library resources, and work with groups across the University to support and highlight work around diversifying the curriculum.

I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals. I have postgraduate qualifications in Academic Practice, Working with individuals on the autism spectrum and Information and Library Management.  I have an interest in supporting students in the transition into Higher Education and in technology enhanced learning.

I also have a pastoral role as Deputy Senior Adviser for Furness College.
