Amy has been working at UCA for over ten years specialising in digital curation.
She manages the national VADS image collection for art and design, and the University's Open Access research repository UCA Research Online, and has project managed a number of externally-funded projects relating to the creation, use, and management of digital assets in the visual arts, with a combined project funding of £370,000.
She was Project Manager for UCA’s Zandra Rhodes Digital Study Collection project (2011-13) in collaboration with Zandra Rhodes Studio, funded by Jisc. The project provided online access for the first time to 500 garments from the fashion designer's private archive, and was officially launched online by actress Joanna Lumley.
Other Jisc and AHRC-funded projects include:
- Visual Arts Data Skills for Researchers (2013-14)
- Spot the Difference, on visual plagiarism (2010-11)
- Look-here, which developed digitisation skills and strategies with nine institutions (2009-11)
- Enhancing VADS (2008-9) and
- Picshare (2008).
Before UCA, Amy worked at the Tate Gallery and the Courtauld Institute of Art as a librarian, and obtained an MA in Library & Information Studies and a BA in Art History & English Literature.
