Responsibilities and interests

Peter currently holds the position of Associate Director, Research, Collections, Systems and Infrastructure within the library. Research, Collections, Systems and Infrastructure provides support for the University’s strategic research objectives through Curtin’s institutional repository, advice and training in areas such as scholarly communications, open access, copyright, bibliometrics and research data management, and is responsible for development and maintenance of the Library’s collections. It acquires and facilitates access to scholarly resources, manages the John Curtin Prime Ministerial Library, creates digital research archives and the reserve collection.

He is a past Chair of the Australian Digital Theses Technical Committee, which provides advice on technical issues related to the ADT program and he was involved in the recent ADT Expansion and Redevelopment Project as Consultant Technical Director until its successful completion in 2006. Prior to that he was the Project Manager of the WAGUL Authentication Project on a part-time basis from 2001 until the end of April 2004.

He is interested in all matters that relate to the provision of information services in the digital age. The emerging semantic web would appear to have the most potential for causing a major change to how the information profession does its business, though we may not feel its effect for some years. In the shorter term his areas of interest include the utilisation of university portals by libraries, the Open Archive Initiative and the long term preservation of digital objects.

Professional activities

Peter was awarded the Council of Australian University Librarians’ (CAUL) Achievement Award for 2003 for “outstanding performance and lasting contribution to the CAUL Strategic Plan” see citation.

He moderates the WAIN (Western Australian Information Network) e-mail discussion list. WAIN has provided a service to the information profession in WA since 1994, currently has over 1000 subscribers and allows the dissemination of information regarding professional activities, positions that become available and other matters of general interest to the information profession.

He was awarded the Sharr Medal in 1993. This prestigious award is for the graduate most likely to have a positive impact on the library and information profession in Western Australia. It is awarded by the Western Australian Branch of the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA).

In 2013 Peter led the team that contributed to the National Year of Reading through the creation of Curtin Library’s National Year of Reading Blog.
