Library Staff profiles

Have you ever wanted to find out more about the people who work at Avery Hill and Stockwell Street Library? Of course you have! We continue our weekly profiles of the various staff you may spot or speak to at our libraries. Find out what they do, both inside and outside of working at the University of Greenwich!

This week, we profile the Senior Academic Services Librarian at Avery Hill Library, Barbara Gallagher:

Barbara Gallagher

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE UNIVERSITY/LIBRARY?
23 years! I came on a six-month, part-time, term-time only contract when my children were eight, five and three. I was extremely part-time for the first eight years and then started working full-time, all-year round, 15 years ago. I’ve never looked back!

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE IN THE LIBRARY?
Ensuring the smooth running of Avery Hill Library on a day-to-day basis. I work with a small but perfectly formed team who will always go the extra mile to help our students and academic staff.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE LIBRARY?
Helping people who come into the library and don’t know where to start. It’s a great feeling when they go on their way with the information/books they need and a new-found confidence.

WHICH BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY DO YOU FIND MOST INTERESTING?
I am interested in the Psychology books but I mostly borrow the fiction.

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN GREENWICH TO EAT/HAVE LUNCH?
In the summer, I love the outdoor cafés in Greenwich Park and they do a rather nice afternoon tea in the Fan Museum, but you need to book! I also like the food in Greenwich Market.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
I do a few fitness classes, swimming and dancing (mainly on the kitchen floor, dreaming I am a professional tap dancer – well, we all have some impossible dreams, don’t we?!).

FAVOURITE BOOK, MUSIC AND FILM?
Where do I start?!

I’m in a book group with 10 others and read at least one book a month. I love different genres such as the Nicci French psychological novels, Lee Child’s thrillers, Jane Austen, Samuel Pepys, Peter Ackroyd, Zadie Smith, Ian McEwan, plus a spot of chick-lit now and again! Favourite children’s books which I revisit are Tom’s Midnight Garden, The Secret Garden and When Marnie Was There.

As for music, I like all sorts – Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Black Sabbath, plus stuff on Classic FM. I want to have Freebird by Lynyrd Skynyrd played at the end of my funeral!

I love old black and white movies such as Rebecca and Brief Encounter. I also enjoy vintage musical films like High Society, Top Hat, Singin’ In The Rain and Some Like It Hot. I’m a huge fan of Apocalypse Now which I think is one of the best anti-war films ever made. Little Miss Sunshine is a film I can enjoy anytime. It has some very serious themes but is also highly entertaining – go on try it! You’ll be laughing one minute but you’ll also need a hanky!

WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU LIKE TO VISIT?
As an old gal, I now have a bucket list and visit a new country every year. Cuba is quite high on my list but I’ll give the cigars a miss!

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPERHUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Powers to stop people feeling depressed would be fantastic – mental illness causes so much misery.

HAVE YOU VISITED THE CUTTY SARK, NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, ROYAL OBSERVATORY AND QUEEN’S HOUSE?
Yes, all of them – I think Greenwich is an amazing place!

Library Staff profiles

Have you ever wanted to find out more about the people who work at Avery Hill and Stockwell Street Library? Of course you have! We continue our weekly profiles of the various staff you may spot or speak to at our libraries. Find out what they do, both inside and outside of working at the University of Greenwich!

This week, we profile the Head of Library Services at Stockwell Street Library and Avery Hill Library, Ginny Malone:

Ginny Malone

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE UNIVERSITY/LIBRARY?
I started working at Avery Hill Library in January 1988. I was periodicals librarian and subject librarian for Special Needs Education and Theology.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE IN THE LIBRARY?
I manage a great team of people making sure Library Services and Academic Skills supports our users to reach their potential, and become confident users of the fantastic resources that are available to them within the University.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE LIBRARY?
The fact that most of the time the library team are concentrating on helping students. Though we do have to enforce library rules, and sometimes we are made to feel like the "noise police", but that is because we are trying to make the library a place where everyone can study!

WHICH BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY DO YOU FIND MOST INTERESTING?
At Stockwell Street, I love the displays of Folio books which are on the second floor. Many of them are architecture and landscape and have stunning illustrations. At Avery Hill, they have started a collection of books for small children and, again, the art work in some of them is just gorgeous

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN GREENWICH TO EAT/HAVE LUNCH?
Heaps Sausage Shop just round the corner from Stockwell Street Library – you get 10% off if you show your University ID card! Great coffee, as well.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
I like spending time with friends, listening to music, eating delicious food and drinking good wine.

FAVOURITE BOOK, MUSIC AND FILM?
Book – I am struggling to say just one so will exercise my rights as Head of Library Services to pick two! Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro.

Music – Blue by Joni Mitchell.

Film – Christmas is coming so I expect to wallow in It's A Wonderful Life which I watch once a year at least. I love the scene where Clarence the Angel (2nd class!) is showing George Bailey how awful life would have been if he had never been born. It shows his wife, Mary, instead of being a happy housewife with lots of kids, would have become the town librarian – the horror of it! It's made to seem like a fate worse than death!

WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU LIKE TO VISIT?
Anywhere that can guarantee a good show of the Northern Lights!

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPERHUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
To please everyone.

HAVE YOU VISITED THE CUTTY SARK, NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, ROYAL OBSERVATORY AND QUEEN’S HOUSE?
I haven't been to the Cutty Sark in its new incarnation, and I also need to revisit the Queen’s House now it is open again.

We continue our weekly profiles of the various staff you may spot or speak to at our libraries. Find out what they do, both inside and outside of working at the University of Greenwich!

This week, we profile our User Services Manager at our Stockwell Street Library, Hélène Mallauran:

Hélène Mallauran

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE UNIVERSITY/LIBRARY?
I’m getting close to my long service award. I started in 1998 as a Circulation Assistant on a temporary contract when I was 23…

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE IN THE LIBRARY?
My job consists of focusing on the user experience, customer care, service design, marketing and production.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE LIBRARY?
Supporting students throughout their student life. I love to see students in their graduation gowns, about to go to their ceremonies and it’s even better when I find out they have a job.

WHICH BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY DO YOU FIND MOST INTERESTING?
I love the novels!

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN GREENWICH TO EAT/HAVE LUNCH?
I like the food stalls in Greenwich Market especially the sushi one! 

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
Outside work, I like to keep fit. I also like to meet friends and have a nice chat over dinner.

FAVOURITE BOOK, MUSIC AND FILM?
For books, I love Jane Austen and the way she gives us good insights into the lives of early nineteenth century women. My favourite is Emma. I like a lot of different genres of music. I love old French music such as Édith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Barbara but I enjoy modern music too. At the moment, I am listening to Andrew Bird. I love old films. Hitchcock films are probably my favourites, such as Psycho with Anthony Perkins, or Notorious with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, or The Birds with Tippi Hedren.

WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU LIKE TO VISIT?
Still a few places I would like to visit – Peru, Australia, New Zealand and Japan (for sushi, of course)!

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPERHUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Flying, of course! I love travelling so if I could fly, imagine where I could go! If I could have a second superhuman power that would be invisibility – disappearing when you want…

HAVE YOU VISITED THE CUTTY SARK, NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, ROYAL OBSERVATORY AND QUEEN’S HOUSE?
I have visited all of these places – I live nearby and always take family and friends to them when they come to visit. I love taking them at the Greenwich Meridian line in the evening, and seeing the green laser light marking the Meridian line shining out from the Royal Observatory.

Providing high quality spaces, resources and services which really make a positive difference to student learning.

FAVOURITE BOOK, MUSIC AND FILM?
Book – I like historical fiction, so books from authors such as Hilary Mantel, Conn Iggulden, Simon Scarrow and Bernard Cornwell. Music – all sorts ranging from the 1980’s onwards. I recently saw The Cure live at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. They were fantastic! Film – Pulp Fiction.

WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU LIKE TO VISIT?
I’ve travelled a fair amount and I’d like to visit lots more places, but I’d particularly like to stay in a log cabin in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, USA. 

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPERHUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
To fly. Total freedom.

HAVE YOU VISITED THE CUTTY SARK, NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, ROYAL OBSERVATORY AND QUEEN’S HOUSE?
Yes, particularly when my children were small – they loved the Museum and Observatory. We also spent many a Sunday morning walking around Greenwich Park, feeding the ducks and visiting the playground. The Painted Hall and Chapel are both stunning spaces to visit as well.

We continue our weekly profiles of the various staff you may spot or speak to at our libraries. Find out what they do, both inside and outside of working at the University of Greenwich!

This week, we profile Karen Richardson, our Academic Subject Librarian for Computing, Mathematical Science and Creative Professions and Digital Arts. She is based at the Stockwell Street Library.

Karen Richardson

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE UNIVERSITY/LIBRARY?
I believe I’m getting close to my long service award, but can’t remember exactly as I started on short term contracts as a shelver.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE IN THE LIBRARY?
I support students in Computing, Mathematical Science and Creative Professions and Digital Arts, as well as working with my colleagues to make sure the library as a whole runs smooth.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE LIBRARY?
The light bulb moment when students suddenly get it all, and seeing them graduate.

WHICH BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY DO YOU FIND MOST INTERESTING?
Always a tricky one, just like what’s your favourite film… Wait! That’s question seven! I think most areas interest me, though I am drawn to the science and maths good reads that try to explain these subjects in simple and fun ways, such as How to Teach Your Dog Quantum Physics by Chad Orzel and How Long is a Piece of String by Robert Eastaway and Jeremy Wyndham.

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN GREENWICH TO EAT/HAVE LUNCH?
I like the international food stalls in Greenwich Market and Noodle Time. If I’m short on cash, I go to the Student Union bar which also has pool tables!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
Playing board games such Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne (not the family staples such as Monopoly). I also play in a brass band and do gardening when I can.

FAVOURITE BOOK, MUSIC AND FILM?
For books, historical fantasies (there’s a few about libraries), science-fiction and historical ones about World War II celebrating the ingenuity of people – if you think that is an odd mix… so do I! I like a lot of different genres of music so my decision is based on the ones I feel most compelled to sing along to, which seem to be either ABBA, Queen or Annie Lennox. Finally, films – I guess if I am to narrow it down, the Star Trek and Indiana Jones series and comedies with Cary Grant in them.

WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU LIKE TO VISIT?
Still on my list are Ethiopia, Jordan and Machu Picchu (before an earthquake hits).

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPERHUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would like to fly. You can go from A to B in a straight line and it would make up for being short!

HAVE YOU VISITED THE CUTTY SARK, NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, ROYAL OBSERVATORY AND QUEEN’S HOUSE?
I have been to the Observatory and the Museum, but not the Cutty Sark or the Queen's House, though I believe the latter has reopened following refurbishment and I am keen to see the new galleries!

Your new portal




From Monday 7th November the portal will have a new, updated look. To enable this work to take place there will be no access to the existing portal or Moodle over the weekend of 5th – 6th November.

The new portal will have a number of new features, it is cleaner and clearer and will be easier to find information and the links to the essential resources and systems you need to use.

IT and Library Services have worked with staff and students to create a clearer and more intuitive layout and to ensure all essential content is easily accessible. There will be a ‘Quick Links’ bar at the top of every page to provide access to key services with a single click and an improved search function to help you find what you need. The new portal also has a responsive design, so that it will work well whichever device you are accessing it from. 

During the week of the launch, library staff will be on hand in our campus libraries to help you use the new portal and find what you need.
We hope you like your new portal. Feedback can be sent to: portal.feedback@gre.ac.uk

We continue our weekly profiles of the various staff you may spot or speak to at our libraries. Find out what they do, both inside and outside of working at the University of Greenwich!

This week, we talk to Irene Barranco Garcia, the Collaborations, Compliance and Copyright Manager based at the Stockwell Street Library.

Irene Barranco Garcia

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE UNIVERSITY/LIBRARY?
I started working here in January 2006 as an Academic Librarian. Gosh! That is over 10 years! Time flies when you are having fun.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE IN THE LIBRARY?
I look after students at Partner Institutions, home and overseas, promoting the use of all the information resources that we have in the library, mainly online. If students are aware of the huge range of resources we have, and know how to access them, this will have a huge impact in the quality of their academic work. I am also the Copyright Librarian, too. It sounds fab, doesn’t it?

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE LIBRARY?
I enjoy working with students who want to succeed in their studies. They are passionate about knowledge and appreciate all the help we can offer them.

WHICH BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY DO YOU FIND MOST INTERESTING?
Any books about learning and teaching… fascinating!

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN GREENWICH TO EAT/HAVE LUNCH?
I love the noodle bars around Greenwich, but my current favourite place is Heaps for a bacon and avocado bap. Don’t tell anyone - it is busy enough as it is!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
Shopping, shopping and more shopping. And going to the movies!

FAVOURITE BOOK, MUSIC AND FILM?
That is the most difficult question ever. I am not too knowledgeable about music. I love what I love. I have to say Bon Jovi then. If I have to recommend a book I would say One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, but only if you are going to read it in Spanish. In English, I would recommend The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. One film?! If I have to choose one, I would say Amelie.

WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU LIKE TO VISIT?
I am dying to go to Japan! Imagine… All that sushi… Cannot wait!

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPERHUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Reading minds… That would freak a few people out, wouldn’t it?

HAVE YOU VISITED THE CUTTY SARK, NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, ROYAL OBSERVATORY AND QUEEN’S HOUSE?
Yes, I am pleased to say I have visited all of them several times. And I would add to the list The Painted Hall, although it is currently closed for an ambitious conservation project. Cannot wait to see it finished!

This week, we meet Tom Perry, a circulation support assistant at Avery Hill Library:

Tom Perry

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE UNIVERSITY/LIBRARY?
Almost a year.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE IN THE LIBRARY?
I’m a Circulation Assistant. So, amongst other things, I hunt and gather books for students via item requests and get books to other sites via blue boxes and yellow bags. My role is student-facing too, so I get to show people how to use the catalogues and Library Search. I also help with the Greenwich libraries Twitter account, and run the library Flickr account.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE LIBRARY?
The team we’ve got here is really good, a nice group of people to work with; and I really like the site itself - it’s a beautiful place.

WHICH BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY DO YOU FIND MOST INTERESTING?
At the moment, all the books on Photoshop CC.

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN GREENWICH TO EAT/HAVE LUNCH?

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?

FAVOURITE BOOK, MUSIC AND FILM?
White Noise by Don Delillo
This World and Body by Marion
Double Indemnity

The ability to know and completely understand the content of any book I touch.

HAVE YOU VISITED THE CUTTY SARK, NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, ROYAL OBSERVATORY AND QUEEN’S HOUSE?
