What do you most like about working in libraries?
Working in Libraries is my passion. When I arrived to the United States in 2002, I had to reinvent myself, and it was no doubt that I had to do it in the same field I had chosen in my native country, Librarianship.
My profession is one of the most versatile fields. Library Science offers a large umbrella of possibilities such as collaborating with individuals and institutions, assisting patrons with research, sharing knowledge and skills with colleagues, incorporating new technologies to benefit a large community, and working with donors as well as learning from them, among others. These factors influence the passion I have for my career; they present challenges that I am always willing to overcome in order to grow in this discipline.
