Gareth Owen started in post as Acting Deputy University Librarian and Assistant Director University Library Service at Cardiff University on 7 January, following 5 years as the programme manager for the WHELF Shared LMS.
He is a qualified librarian, who has worked across university and further education libraries, as well as the libraries of the House of Commons and the National Assembly for Wales.
“I’m excited about working with the library service at Cardiff University – it’s a great service, with incredible staff. I’d also like to thank colleagues across Wales for their support in my role as programme manager for the Shared LMS. It was a privilege to be part of the LMS journey. I’ll be sure to maintain very close links with WHELF colleagues and will look for every opportunity to build on the fantastic network that has developed across WHELF.”
