The next few weeks bring many staffing changes to Nuffield College Library.
After sixteen years of service, Gill Skidmore will be retiring from the position of Assistant Librarian (Circulation) on August 31st.
Ed Smithson, formerly our Assistant Librarian (Periodicals), will take over Gill’s role. He will manage Nuffield’s memberships and loans (among other things!).
Lucy Forster, our former graduate trainee, having now qualified as a librarian by studying for a MSc at UWE, will be assuming the role of Assistant Librarian (Periodicals). She will be responsible for the hundreds of journals subscribed to by the library.
On September 9th, after four years as Assistant Librarian (Government publications), Michelle Mumford will return to Canada.
Michelle’s responsibilities will be shared by the remaining library staff: Liz, Tessa, Tula, Ed, Clare and Lucy.
Gill and Michelle have both done sterling work in the library and we will miss them hugely. We thank them for their enormous contribution to the life of the library, and wish them well in their future endeavours.

In other news, we are pleased to welcome Charlotte Kelham as our new graduate trainee. She begins her year-long contract on September 1st.
Amidst all of these changes, we will continue to maintain a high level of service and to welcome new students and fellows arriving in Michaelmas Term. We are currently in our summer hours (13.30-17.30, Monday to Friday), but will switch to our regular hours (9.30-17.30, Monday to Friday) on September 12th.
