The administrators of Informed are volunteers who jointly came up with the idea of creating a neutral blogspace for library and information professionals. We are responsible for the running of the site and act as moderators, ensuring that posts meet our editorial guidelines.

Ian Clark

I completed an MSc in Information and Library Studies at Aberystwyth University in 2012, having previously graduated in English and History at Winchester University.  From 2005 to 2010 I worked in public libraries, managing a number of small and town centre libraries, having previously worked in the private sector.  I am particularly interested in issues around the digital divide, transparency and freedom of information and have written a number of articles on these areas for a variety of national publications.
