Talks on Librarianship

The University of Malta Library and the University’s Division of Library & Information Studies, CCT, in association with the American Center, Malta will be organising a talk on two topics:
Being a Librarian in the 21st Century 
The Library of Congress: how it can be useful to Maltese Librarians

Both topics are highly relevant to librarians and those working in information related environments. The topics will be addressed by
Margaret E. Melun, Information Resource Officer, United States
Department of State.Ms Melun holds a Master of Science in Library Science from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. and a B.A. in History from Dominican University in River Forest, IL.

Prior to joining the Foreign Service she worked at the Library of Congress as a senior reference specialist in the Congressional Research
Service, and was also involved in staff training programmes. Her library career has included work as a reference librarian at Georgetown
University Library in Washington D.C. and as the librarian for the noted weekly publication The National Journal. Ms Melun is currently
assigned regional responsibilities in a number of Mediterranean countries for providing professional guidance and direction to Information Resource Centres at American Embassies.

The event promises to be a particularly interesting session as well as an opportunity for continuous professional development.
