Yasmin Morais appointed UDC Cataloging Librarian

On July 1, 2009, Yasmin Morais began working as a Cataloging Librarian at the David A. Clarke Law Library of the University of the District of Columbia.  At UDC, she will work as a cataloger, have both reference and collection development responsibilities, and work as a faculty liaison.

Yasmin was the fifth Resident Librarian at the Georgetown University Law Library.  Her residency period was from July 2007-June 2009.  She earned her MLS from the University of Toronto’s iSchool in 2007, and was the first graduate of  her school to participate in ARL’s Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce.

Although librarianship is a second career for her (Yasmin also holds a second Masters degree in International Relations and nine years of project management experience with the United Nations Development Program), she reports, “…if I had to do it all over again, I would still choose a residency program.”

Yasmin is one of several contributors to an upcoming book on residency programs to be published by Libraries Unlimited.  Look for it in the fall of 2010.

Congratulations, Yasmin.
