Catherine Chorley

Librarian and Archivist

Catherine joined the team in 2023. She is a qualified librarian and Chartered Member of CILIP, the Library and Information Association. Currently, she is the Secretary to the CILIP South West Member Network, which represents the interests of library and information professionals across the region. Previously, she has been Vice Chair and Chair of the Committee.
She gained her librarianship qualification from UCL, having previously studied English Language and Literature at Lancaster University and English Language at the University of Oxford.
Catherine’s library experience includes both academic and public libraries, but began her library life in specialist research libraries and archives, so she holds great affection for the historical collections here at Bristol Baptist College.
Though Catherine currently live in Cheltenham, she will always be a ‘Lancashire lass’.
