Hello and welcome to the Senior Library!
My name is Katharine Ryan and I have been College Librarian at St. Andrew’s College since November 2006. I am a professionally qualified Librarian having trained and worked at University College Dublin.
I have had a varied career working at a teaching training college, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, international property consultants Richard Ellis and Jonathan Edwards Consulting (all in London). I completed my MSc at City University, London, and then moved to Bermuda where I was Librarian at a private K-12 school. Research and information can take you anywhere in the world!
I have a keen interest in the provision of information literacy in Irish schools and am a member of the Library Association of Ireland’s Task Force On Information Literacy. I am also a member of the School Library Association of Ireland (SLARI) and the American Library Association (ALA).
