John Cox
University Librarian
John Cox is University Librarian at National University of Ireland, Galway. His earlier professional career was in the UK, initially at Aston University as Cataloguer and Engineering Information Specialist from 1983 to 1989. A spell in medical libraries followed in London at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine and as Head of Information Services at the Wellcome Centre for Medical Science. He returned to Ireland in 1996 as Head of Library IT Services at University College Cork, before moving to NUI Galway in late 1999, initially as Deputy Librarian.

After graduating from University College Dublin with an MA in Latin, John completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Library and Information Studies at Aberystwyth University. He has a particular interest in digital libraries, both through initiatives such as the digitisation of the Abbey Theatre archive at NUI Galway and a recent review article on communicating new library roles to enable digital scholarship.
