Liz Osman

Fellow Librarian

Formerly Librarian at Henley Business School and a graduate of Trinity College, Oxford, Liz joined Homerton as College Librarian in 2010. She oversaw a complete refurbishment of the Library in 2012 and is currently heavily involved in a University-wide programme to select and implement a new library management system across the University and Colleges.

"My role is to manage all aspects of the library to ensure that we are providing the right resources to support our students in their studies. It is important for me to look at the strategic longer term needs as well as be reactive to current requirements. I also have the very enjoyable task of looking after our rare books and liaising with potential donors about additions to the collection. I also provide the main point of contact with College Fellows for both their teaching and research needs."
