Treasurer – Kirsty Wallis
Approaching the end of my MSc in Library and Information Studies, the chance to join the new CILIP in Kent group came at an almost perfect time. Previously I have worked in Web Publishing, so volunteering to be part of the team responsible for the web presence of the group was something I thought I’d be able to enjoy as well as being a brilliant opportunity. My background is in Anthropology, and while I used to work in the Social Sciences team, I have recently transferred to work with the Sciences Faculty in the Library at the University of Kent.
