Library Student Assistants Graduate in December

Posted by isulib on December 19, 2016

Two library student assistants received post-graduate degrees on Saturday, December 17th!

  • Samuel Komera, a Graduate Assistant in Special Collections, was supervised by Cinda May and Kendra McCrea and worked with them for about a year.  Samuel received his Master’s Degree in Computer Science on Saturday, December 17th.  He’s from Telanger, Hyderabad, India and his work in Special Collections was focused mostly on revamping the department’s web page.
  • Ramya Sree Matcha was a student assistant in the Interlibrary Loan unit of Technical Services. She worked in that area for the past 3 semesters under Holli Moseman’s supervision.  Ramya, who is originally from Khaman, India, received her Master’s Degree in Electronics and Computer Technology.
