Meet our Team!

Emma Walsh has been the College Librarian at Regent’s Park College since 2008. She has qualifications in both library studies and theology. This job brings together the two main areas of her experience as a Librarian and a Baptist Minister. Although her strangest job has been as a fish monger!

Julian Lock has been part-time Archivist (looking after the library's collections of unpublished material) since 2005, having also done editing work, written for the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, and - a long time ago - done a doctorate in Elizabethan religious history.

Emily Burgoyne has been the Library Assistant at The Angus since 2009, having previously worked at the Oxfordshire Records Office. Emily has a History BA, and drinks copious amounts of tea.
