Our Subject Librarians in the School of Health Sciences support staff and students with their learning, teaching and research activities. They do this by:

  • ensuring that the books on your reading lists are up to date and available in the library
  • offering staff and students 1-2-1 support via appointment
  • delivering library training sessions on literature searching and referencing
  • regularly attending Staff-Student Liaison Committee (SSLC), Learning and Teaching Committee (LTC) and/or Programme Committee meetings.

Each Subject Librarian covers a different subject area of expertise:

Steve O’Driscoll – Subject Librarian for Health Services Research & Management; Language Communication Science ; Optometry and SHS Research Librarian (Masters, PhDs and academics). Steve has worked at City since 2001. He enjoys helping students with their research and using the library’s resources.

Catherine Radbourne – Subject Librarian for Nursing and Midwifery. Catherine has worked at City since 2009, first at Whitechapel then at West Smithfield before moving to the main campus at Northampton Square. She enjoys helping students and staff to find the information or items they are looking for and teaching them how to use the library’s resources. Her favourite part of the Library is the purple chairs by the entrance – comfort and a view of the Square.

Endang Scanlon – Subject Librarian for Radiography and Applied Biological Sciences. Endang has been a Radiography Subject Librarian when the Radiography Department was located in Charterhouse Square and in the last few years has also become involved in supporting parts of the Nursing staff and students too. She finds the best thing about working at City is to be able to provide support for staff and students from different backgrounds and cultural diversity. Anatomy TV is Endang’s favourite online resource.
