I have a BA degree in Accounting from USIU [4]. my previous work experience includes public relations , customer service and administrative work.
My idea about libraries was that they are merely a collection of books! Little did I know about the work, effort and thought it involves to keep, maintain and update a library, until I worked at the Effat library!
I am enjoying the challenge, learning new skills and love working with my colleagues and students!
