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. Phase I of the project has been completed, and as of September 2016 Phase II is underway. I am also the co-prinicipal investigator for CSUN's Oviatt Library on the IMLS funded LA as Subject Residency Program. In Fall 2016, I will be on campus part time until the end of the semester..
