Interlibrary Loan Specialist
Dick Smith Library – Main Floor – 109G
I graduated from Tarleton State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree. While I was in school, I worked at the library's circulation desk until December 2016. I took a little break from working, and on September 5th I became the Interlibrary Loan Specialist. It is my job to process borrowing and lending through ILLIAD for faculty, staff, and students, as well as other institutions. In other words, I request books, articles, and audiovisual materials from other libraries that have them. We do the same and different libraries borrow our materials. Most of the articles are exchanged electronically. The cool part of my job is that I have to package the books and send them by mail.
I grew up in México in a city named San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. I go back and forth every summer or Christmas break to visit my family. Other than that, I spent most of my time exercising, watching Netflix, or reading. I began to get a passion for books while I was earning my degree, since most of my classes required me to read from different literature movements from Spain, Latin America, and the Caribbean. I like literature because I can learn about history events, fashion and many things that happened around the time the book was published. Not only that, I like to analyze the writing style of the authors because they have unique ways of telling stories. Others express their political views by using different personifications to pass the censors. On the other hand, learning about history is another hobby of mine. My favorite topics included World War I, World War 2, the Holocaust, and anything involving dictators.
I am so happy to be here. I look forward to learning more about the library!
