Hello everyone, I’m Stuart Glover. I’m a chartered librarian who has worked in public, academic and NHS Libraries as a Library Assistant and Librarian since my Uncle got me my first casual library job back in 1995.
I completed an MA in Information & Library Studies at Loughborough University in 2002 and having spent a few years with my friends in the NHS library service in Northamptonshire (@NHFTNHSLibrary) I made the move to be a Deputy Librarian at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust where I am now the Library Services Manager.
As well as being a CILIP member, I was one of the two main organizers for the large Health Libraries Group conference in 2010 and 2012. I am also an Evangelical Christian (and member of the Librarians’ Christian Fellowship) and currently a very happy fan of Wigan Athletic Football Club!
I hope to be able to give a flavour of the diversity of work in an NHS Library and hope to be able to demonstrate the very real impact that we have in the lives of the local population and the NHS staff that treat them.
The picture here is me…but I very rarely wear a tie let alone a suit!
Please feel free to get in touch and ask me any questions.
