Maureen has extensive experience as a librarian/information officer in both private and public sector organisations, including the Educational Research Centre in Dublin, the British Standards Institution, the European Commission and Mars/Masterfoods. Much of her work has involved a European dimension, ranging from research librarian in science and technology at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Italy, to working in a Euro Info Centre, a European business information network, at the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce, and now at NFER as part of a similar network for European education systems.

As well as carrying out literature searches for projects, Maureen provides current awareness services to both staff and external clients. This involves monitoring news sources and producing general and tailored current awareness bulletins.
