Marianne Afifi, Project Librarian, Oviatt Library


Duties and Responsibilities

In August 2014 I retired from my position as the Associate Dean of the Oviatt Library. However, I am now participating in the California State University Faculty Early Retirement Program ( FERP) working on special projects for the Dean. One of these projects is the renovation and expansion of the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives, currently underway. I also am participating in the implementation of several Campus Quality Fee funded projects and other special initiatives. I am the co-prinicipal investigator for CSUN's Oviatt Library on the IMLS funded LA as Subject Residency Program. In 2015, I am on campus until the end of September.
