Honoring AUS Library’s Student Assistants – Spring 2017

The AUS library is pleased to recognize three graduating library student assistants who have worked tirelessly to provide ongoing support to our Circulation and Information Commons departments.

These students have worked at least 4 semesters with us, and in recognition of their long-standing service to the library, are now honored recipients of the AUS Library’s Student Assistant Recognition Program. Each has selected a book which now contains their name inscribed on a book-plate.

Aya Ahmad has worked with us for 4 semesters and is graduating from the College of Arts and Sciences, majoring in Biology. She has selected One Thousand and One Nights: A Retelling by Hana Al-Shaykh as a title that brings back many childhood memories for her.

Mostafa El Zaghby is graduating from the College of Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering. He has worked in the library for 5 semesters and has chosen George Orwell’s well known and chilling prophecy about the future – 1984.

Marah Ali is also graduating from the College of Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering. She too has worked in the library for 5 semesters and her book selection is The Collected Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe – a collection that encompasses detective tales, satires, fables, science fiction and verse.

All students spoke of the wide variety of skills they have acquired working for the library including customer service, handling difficult situations, troubleshooting technology and working as a member of a team. These are all skills that can be transferred to the workplace and highlighted in CVs when applying for jobs.

The AUS Library would like to thank Aya, Mostafa and Marah for their outstanding service to the Library. We wish them all every success in their future careers.
