Marri Atienza, the new document delivery coordinator at Public Health Library, recently graduated from CSU Sacramento, where she worked in the library in circulation, ILL, mailroom, and training other student workers. She also worked in the John F. Kennedy Library while attending Napa Valley College.
Marri has already endured a trial by fire as all the PUBL staff worked on a Rush contract project last week -- this was only her third week here! It was a ton of work but Marri came out sailing.
To acclimate to the variety of UC Berkeley libraries, Marri is visiting all of them over the next few months. If you see her, please join us in welcoming her to campus!
