I am currently working on research into copyright literacy levels among UK librarians. This included a large scale survey and it being followed up by focus groups to collect qualitative data. In addition I am the manager of LSE's Student Ambassadors for Digital Literacy programme which is an undergraduate, peer support network to understand and support digital literacies. I am Chair of the CILIP Information Literacy Group and collaborating with several organisations to develop a wider understanding of the value of information literacy outside the library sector. This involves projects with TeenTech in schools and the Tinder Foundation, working to support digital inclusion in public libraries.
