I’m 37 and I live in Horncastle, Lincolnshire (UK) with my wife and family. I’m the Electronic Resources Librarian at the University of Lincoln, where I manage and develop many of the University’s digital library services. This WordPress website is hosted by my.blogs.lincoln at the University of Lincoln.
