Scientific Data Manager (Biological Focus)
Based within the BAS Information Services group, I work across the Archives/Records Management Service, UK Polar Data Centre and Library. This involves supporting cross-cutting activities within the group – in particular dealing with both internal and external enquiries, and maintaining output metrics. I also assist with improving collection discovery and access; creating, editing and maintaining catalogue entries and metadata entries that cover archival material, library publications, and scientific datasets, both physical and digital.
From May-September 2021 I am on secondment to the Polar Data Centre alone, working on the creation of a new Tristan da Cunha Data Portal.
