#WeAreUAZLibraries: Hayri Yildirim

Monday, August 19, 2019

#WeAreUAZLibraries is a bi-weekly series that introduces our staff on Facebook and Instagram. Meet Hayri Yildirim!

What do you do?

I lead the Facilities, Shipping, Bindery, & Collections Maintenance team in the Libraries.

How long have you worked for UA Libraries?

I have been part of the Libraries since January 18, 2005.

What's your favorite library resource or service and why?

My favorite library resource are the databases we have. I do a lot of research on Ottoman/Turkish history and these resources help me quite a bit.

What would people be surprised to know about you?

An interesting tidbit about me is that I was actually a student employee in the early 1980s here at the library and I have touched each book at least three times.
