User Services Specialist (Reference)
Dick Smith Library – Lower Level – room B05
Hi! My name is Yeidi (pronounced jay-dee) and I am one of the new User Services Assistants at the Dick Smith Library. I am responsible for opening the library Mondays through Fridays. If you need help finding a book, article, or any other resource, or simply need assistance with library equipment, I’m here to help. I will also be helping with Library promotion and many other fun library tasks.
So a little bit about me. I majored in Humanities at the University Of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus, and after that I studied Elementary Education, which led me to work as a teacher for four years. Through college, I worked in a library and I realized I have always remembered those years with much love and nostalgia. When life changed its course and traced a new journey for me to follow, I decided to work in a place I just loved, the library, and here I am.
On the weekends, I like to start my mornings by making a breakfast feast (breakfast is my favorite meal of the day), family time with my preschooler, photography, running, and pretty much being outdoors. Now, regarding a favorite book, it’s tough because I have many. I’m really into biographies, so right now my favorite book is Bossypants by Tina Fey. I really like this book because it’s written by a truly inspiring female writer/comedian, who, by the way, starred in and produced "30 Rock," one of my favorite TV comedies of all time!!!! Her book has many anecdotes I can relate to.
