New city, new job!

After a few months off travelling, I’m returning to the world of work – in Edinburgh!

Tomorrow I’ll be starting as an Academic Support Librarian for the Medical School. It’s a return to a university library service, and I’ll be primarily based in one of the hospital libraries, so this is going to be a pleasant mix of my last couple of jobs.
