How on Earth is it (nearly) April again already? It feels like I just got shot of the last Challenge... If you are new to the blog, or just haven't been paying attention, April is the time of year when I throw caution to the wind and write my way through the alphabet, starting at … Continue reading April A2Z:Theme Reveal
A while a go, the career's service at Surrey employed Annie. I can't now remember exactly how I met Annie, but she was one of those people that ended up having a profound effect on me as a person, and I miss her now that she no longer works at Surrey.

April is getting ever closer, and we'd … Continue reading Things 15 and 16: Open Access and Bibliometrics

More on that as we work through the tasks associated with the things. Wikipedia was founded in 2001, and it was already a go to source of … Continue reading #Things9-11: Finding Information…the easy way.
