Linda Bennett has been part of the library team in the former IT Tallaght and TU Dublin for over 20 years.
A student-centred approach informs Linda’s work in the area of user services, communications, and engagement. Working closely with the students has allowed her to get a better understanding of the students’ needs. Her marketing and communications experience has been invaluable in developing and implementing innovative events, which encourage students to engage with library services.
Exhibitions of the students’ work have been the result of collaborations with her colleagues in other departments across the university.
Her latest long-term project is the development of the library garden into a sensory, sustainable, productive, and beautiful space for both students and staff to enjoy. Instead of weeding books from the collection she will be focusing, for now, on weeding the library garden!
