I am a young, tech-savvy librarian and information specialist with over 5 years of focused IT experience in Linux (Debian/Ubuntu), Open-Source and Windows, WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Apache Web Server, MariaDB/MySQL, PHP, Javascript, XML, HTML, CSS, Web Security, CPanel, Shell Scripting, Tomcat, Koha ILS, DSpace, Vufind, VirtualBox, etc.

I spent a year working as an assistant librarian at GEMS Arts & Science College in Ramapuram, Malappuram, Kerala. presently employed as a librarian at the East Campus of Sacred Heart College (Autonomous) in Thevara, Ernakulam, Kerala. I earned a B.A. in history from the University of Calicut in 2014, and I received a Master’s in library and information science from the same institution in 2018.

In addition to my work, I keep in touch with professional friends. It’s fun for me to talk to people and pick up new information. I concentrate on the open-source and open access movements in libraries, supporting the Koha (an open-source integrated library system) and Dspace (an open-source institutional repository) software systems for librarianship, cataloging, data management, resource sharing, and taking part in the data migration from legacy library software (BookMagic, LibSoft, LibSys, E-Library Solution, E-Granthalaya, DelPlus, CDS/ISIS, SOUL, and NewGenLib) to Koha

 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.

You can reach me through several social networks or via the following emails
