Jerry Jenkins British Library
Position
Curator, Emerging Media, Contemporary British Publications
Specialism
Cultural history of conflict; tools and methodologies to disseminate ideas, information and resources
Department
Collections

I cut my teeth as a reference librarian, dabbled in research and tinkered with social media: all with the goal of connecting people and knowledge.

As well as curating British publications and emerging media, I have also worked with North American official publications and international organisations collections. In May 2015 I transferred to Contemporary British Collections as curator for Emerging Media.
