The Advocates Library will be open tomorrow from 10am-4pm for tours as part of Doors Open Day 2016 in Edinburgh. You need to come to the building to book on a tour – come early as it is very popular! This is an excellent opportunity to come and see part of our collection including Official Publications.
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.
