Hello! My name is Hope and I am an academic subject librarian at the University of Lincoln, where I support the School of History and Heritage and the School of Performing Arts. I’m interesting in helping staff and students make effective use of library resources for teaching, learning and research.

As of June 2019, I am an HEA Fellow.

I am also a medieval historian and my academic activities can be found on academia.edu and ResearchGate.
