Nigel Browne is one of two information managers who together run the current IHS library. He is responsible for the IHS library collection and content provision required to support course development and implementation. He also maintains contacts with external libraries and information networks, manages the subscriptions of (on-line) journals, and arranges access to the ever-increasing number of publications that become available digitally. He advises course coordinators on the availability of relevant publications, sources and references that may be of interest to their courses and thematic interests, manages the acquisition of new publications, and assembles materials for thematic readers. Mr Browne is also involved in developing and transforming the IHS library into a dynamic multifunctional information and knowledge centre for the institute.
