Business Committee Member – Sharron Wilson

I  am a Serials Librarian proud of my unique role within the historic and traditional Advocates Library. Unique as I am responsible for a serials collection comprising of stock acquired via print legal deposit and purchased subscriptions. Traditional as our collection is largely print based and we bind most journals to keep infinitum. My technical speciality is print and online subscription management for journals, loose leaf updates, databases and legislative materials. Official publications form a very small but vitally important part of my day to day work.

 I initially joined SWOP as a representative of the Advocates Library seeking to develop and learn more about Official Publications. I joined the Business Committee in 2012 and enjoy working at the heart of the group.  The work of the committee is very wide and varied – a great opportunity to meet new people and be involved in exciting projects.  I believe SWOP is a vital resource providing access to a network of individuals from the field of Official Publications, each with their own area of expertise.

  1. oh binding journals – I remember those days! I always found it a great source of achievement when we were able to send all journal parts for any given year to the binders! In academic libraries) in my early days of Librarianship) – it was always a challenge!

    1. I actually love binding. The company that we deal with Downie Allison Downie are so helpful and professional they make it an easy process. Unlink finding all journal parts I know – it is a challenge.
