Yoo hoo everyone! I’m Christine and I’ll be spending the next year as the trainee in the English Faculty Library. Had an awesome first week, mainly spent processing new books, journals and donations as well as shadowing on the issue desk and trying not to get too distracted by the Icelandic literature collections 🙂 I spent 4 years studying English & Scottish literature at the University of Aberdeen, graduating in 2008 with MA(Hons.). Since then I have been living in London working in a number of academic libraries, some nice, some not so nice…. Needless to say I am mega excited about spending the next year in Oxford, getting to know you all and working in a library where the students instinctively know not to bring their KFC in to eat.
