Who am I?

I am a native of Vazhappally village in Changanacherry, (Kerala state, India). I did Library and Information Science (MLISc) from the University of Kerala. I worked with the Asian School of Business, Trivandrum for five years (2005-2010). Currently, I work with Mahatma Gandhi University Library, Kottayam.

I became a librarian because of the connection with my village library since my childhood. I started my career as a volunteer librarian for our village library. Our village library is a community gathering place and business with people from various segments of society was really fascinating. I earned graduation in Communicative English from Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam in 2001.

At this point in my life, I was selected to attend the certificate course in Library Science conducted by Kerala State Library Council in 2002. After that, I joined the MLISc two-year programme in 2003 at the University of Kerala.

In addition to my work at the Library, I keep in touch with professional friends. I enjoy hearing people and learn new things. I focus my interests in the role of open source and open access movement in libraries. I am a beginner in this profession and want to continually be part of this profession because the future of librarianship is wide open. The power of the Internet and technology makes this profession very exciting and challenging.
