Research interests

Dr. Paul Gooding is a Lecturer in Information Studies at the University of Glasgow. His research focuses on evaluating the impact of digital library collections on institutions and users, and how library and archival collections can be harnessed for innovative reuse in the Digital Humanities. He is particularly interested in the interaction between digital materials, user behaviour, and legal/institutional frameworks for collection development.  He is the author of Historic Newspapers in the Digital Age: "Search All About It!" (Routledge, 2016), and co-editor of the forthcoming Electronic Legal Deposit: Shaping the Library Collections of the Future (Facet Publishing). He has a track record of publications that span Digital Humanities and Library and Information Studies. 

Paul's funded projects include Digital Library Futures, which investigates the impact of non-print legal deposit upon academic legal deposit libraries in the United Kingdom, and the AHRC-funded Network to Investigate the Development of a Global Dataset of Digitised Texts. He has published broadly on topics relating to digital collections and user behaviour, and undertakes research into DH pedagogy for Postgraduate Research students. He is an Associate Editor for Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, a member of the AHRC Peer Review College, and a Current Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. 

Paul is an experienced information professional who previously worked as a librarian with BBC Sport. His TV credits include the Open Golf, the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. He holds an BA in English Literature from the University of East Anglia, and an MA in Library and Information Studies (2007) and a PhD in Digital Humanities (2014) from University College London.
