This is the blog of Masud Khokhar, Director of Library and Archives at University of York.
I am a strategic and innovative leader who is passionate about Higher Education in general and the Library, Archives, Cultural, and IT sector in particular. I bring a unique mix of private and public sector experience, a strong technology and research background, strategy development expertise and a high level of emotional intelligence. 12 years experience of working in HE Library sector, with last 6 years at senior management level.
Notable areas of expertise include developing strategy, embedding innovation, empowerment of staff, impact assessment and customer-centric solutions to enhance user experience, satisfaction and retention.
I am keen to identify potential areas of collaboration and develop partnerships that grow stronger and deliver results over time. I consistently grow and constantly challenge the boundaries at which we all work, expanding on what’s considered achievable and delivering the very best from teams.
I have been involved in the leadership of a number of national and international library and digital initiatives, either as a board member, chair of the group, or in a consultancy capacity.
