Cendrella Habre

I have been the Director of Riyad Nassar Library at the Lebanese American University–Beirut Campus since 2009.

Previously I held the position of Systems Librarian at LAU for 10 years, Automation Librarian at the Jafet Library, American University of Beirut, Information Specialist at AISG (New York, NY), and Cataloger at Brooklyn Public Library (Brooklyn, NY).

I am currently pursuing my Executive MBA degree from LAU. I have an MLS from Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, NY) and a BS in Library and Information Science from the Lebanese University (Beirut). I have also attended the Frye Leadership Institute in 2007.

I serve on several committees at LAU related to accreditation, strategic planning and libraries and IT. Formerly I chaired the AMICAL Coordinating Committee (American International Consortium of American Libraries).

I speak and publish on topics such as library automation, library management and leadership, and new learning spaces.

Term end date: 30 June 2015
