Gilda Ramos“In my native Peru I considered libraries to be a community resource. Now I'm an American citizen, and I won a national award for my initiatives as a Spanish Speaking Library Assistant in the Patchogue-Medford Library. Earning a M.S. in Library and Information Science at LIU will allow me to go even further.”

M.S. in Library and Information Science, Class of 2014
