Dr Simon Wakeling

Lecturer in Information Studies, School of Information Studies

Simon’s research has included exploring the discovery functionality of online library systems; exploring the systems, processes and overall role of inter-library loans in UK public libraries, and two major projects relating to Open Access. His future research plans are centred on further investigations of open scholarship, particularly open access and associated scholarly communications issues, as well as work on issues relating to open data, which is likely to be highly relevant to academic libraries given their increasing involvement in higher education RDM.
