Charleston Library Conference 

Sep 25, 2017

In today's episode, Matthew Ismail, Head of Collection Development at Central Michigan University, conducts a fascinating interview with Lamia Eid from the American University in Cairo. Topics of conversation range from her family background and upbringing in Cairo, to her education, and how she came to a career in the library at the AUC.

Lamia Eid, Associate Dean of Main Library, Libraries and Learning Technologies (LLT) at the American University in Cairo oversees the overall teaching and services functions and operations of the main library. Lamia plays a leadership role in continuing the evolution of the AUC’s research library and in directing efforts to increase the AUC’s libraries prominence in the community as an organization worthy of support. As the Associate Dean of the Main library, she works on expanding the role of the library and reputation - nationally, regionally and globally - in education and research.
