However I have returned to the Museum for various short term contracts specializing in cataloguing over the last 4 years.

I was a member of Cilip's Cataloguing & Indexing Committee from 2005-2012 and given presentations at the Cilip's Cataloguing and Indexing Conference in Exeter 2010 and Cilip's Umbrella conference in 2011.

I have given a number of presentations about the Linnaeus Link Project from 2006-2008 and was heavily involved with the Linnaeus Tercentenary celebrations during 2007, including a presentation at the Linnean Society and the EBHL conference in Madrid.
