Staff Profile

Emma Delaney

Fascinating Fact:  I have lived at 26 addresses in my lifetime (so far). That’s an average of 1 year 5 months and 2 weeks in each place (and no, it doesn’t include holidays!).

Likes:  Random trips around Britain

Dislikes: Dishonesty and secrets

Hello. I am the Campus and Faculty Librarian for Hartpury College LRC and the UWE Associate Faculty of Hartpury, and joined the team in January 2009.  My tasks include:

  • Leadership of the team at Hartpury LRC including strategic planning, recruitment, management and development of the team and the services they deliver, as part of UWE Library Services.
  • Subject materials selection and management for animal, land and equine sciences.
  • Providing information skills teaching for HE and FE students and staff.
  • Contributing to curriculum development for the HE Faculty.
  • Staffing the Enquiry Desk and helping everyone get the best from our resources.

Favourite part of my job?

The buzz of induction week, hearing back from a student who has got the grade they wanted with our help, and being able to deliver the resources and services that students and staff need and want – which isn’t always easy (and sometimes isn’t possible).

You can contact Emma for any queries regarding the above matters by e-mail at or by phone on 01452 702164.
