Hi, I’m Rose, this year’s trainee for the English Faculty Library. I graduated this year from UCL with a degree in History, and this is my first full-time job. So far I’ve done a variety of tasks here at the EFL, including manning the issue desk, shelving, processing books, checking in periodicals. I have also created two displays for the EFL to show off some of our rare books, which gave me a chance to use my creative flair! A couple of weeks ago I was given the opportunity to visit the UK headquarters of Swets, Oxford University’s journals provider, and now have a better understanding of how journal subscriptions are managed by the Bodleain Libraries.
I hope to learn as much as I can this year and take advantage of all the benefits of working for Oxford University.
