Working in the Libraries

What has been your favorite thing about working in the Libraries?: Helping students with the equipment they need. Meeting new people.

Can you tell us about a favorite memory or job-related achievement from your time working here?: Working and giving tours in the @Reality.

What’s next for you?: Coming back in the spring to finish one more class.

From Luka, Thiha’s supervisor: Thiha is willing to take on as many hours as he can spare. He covers for co-workers often, including at other @One desks. He knows many nuances about the checkout, and he takes initiative to get ahead of busy tasks that he anticipates. He is also the only other Liverpool FC fan in the office, and always has good banter about English Premier League Soccer.

I've followed Thiha's academic successes very closely, and I was most proud of him when I heard that he received a special cap and gown as a present from the Dean of Students.
