My Career

I am employed with NALISbut I am based at a school [1]in Corinth Village via San Fernando. I am the Librarian at the almost extinct Corinth Sixth Form College. The Corinth Sixth Form College Library is shared with the University of Trinidad and Tobago-Corinth Campus. I am the first and last Librarian to ever be there. As my first acting position an Librarian I, I have had an enjoyable and unusual experience at this college. It's not everyday that a school closes but if ever a school library needs to be closed, here's some advice:

  • Ensure that all your inventory (books, furniture, equipment, tattle tape, toners, copy cards and stationery) are identified by their source as they will need to be returned to their origins.
  • Titles of all books must be typed according to their sources on separate lists.
  • As the senior member in the library relate to junior staff relevant and valid information that will help dispense any unnecessary fears.
  • Continuous liason with Principal, Clerk and Supervisors on the matter will assist in all other actions that must be taken to ensure a relatively smooth closure.
