I have served as an Assistant Librarian at GEMS Arts & Science College, Ramapuram, Malappuram. Kerala from  5th Sept of 2019 to 30th Sept of 2020. I am a rural Pandallur native (a village between Pandikkad and Manjeri, Malappuram, Kerala), a 2014 graduate of the University Of Calicut with a B.A. in History, and a 2018 graduate of the University Of Calicut, with a Master’s in Library & Information Science.

In addition to my work, I keep in touch with professional friends. I enjoy hearing people and learn new things. I focus on open-source and open access movement in libraries, supporting Koha software (an open-source integrated library system), Dspace software (an open-source Institutional Repository) systems librarianship, cataloging, data management, resource sharing, and engaging in the migration of data from legacy library software’s (BookMagic, LibSoft, LibSys, E-Library Solution, E-Granthalaya, DelPlus, CDS/ISIS, SOUL and NewGenLib) to Koha ILS, etc.

I am a beginner in this profession and want to continually be part of this profession because the future of librarianship is wide open. The new technology makes this profession very exciting and challenging.

Why I blog and what I blog about

I blog about library-related topics that interest me, things I’ve tried, or things I want to know more about. I don’t have a schedule for postings–just whenever I feel like it! I do not take solicitations for blog topics or products to review.
