We are Anna Lawson and Jane Belger, and work as a job-share as the Research and Open Access Librarian with the Research Support Team at UWE Library.

Our role is to provide library-related support to researchers and postgraduate students with their research. This includes, amongst other things:

Anna also works once a month, on the first Thursday of the month, at Glenside Library – so do come and say hello! She runs a drop-in session between 10am and 1pm; do ask at the library help desk if you can’t find her.

Outside of work, we both enjoy travelling and a decent glass of wine, are married to statisticians, and have 5 children between us (ranging in ages from 10 months to 26). But we’re really not the same person!

If you’d like to learn more about open access or research support in the library more generally, do get in touch by e-mailing Jane will respond Monday to Wednesday, Anna will respond Wednesday through Friday.
