Motivation statement

I am Dil Ruksana Basunia, Deputy Librarian, University of Chittagong, Bangladesh (2nd largest Public University in Bangladesh). Previously I worked as Librarian in Asian University for Women (AUW) an International University. I have B.A, Masters and MPhil Degree in Library Science (awarded with Gold Medal). Also I have over 12 years professional experience of part time and full time in diversified institutions both government and private. I have experience in developing Library Software, Library Web Page including whole Library Automation Project in my present and earlier jobs.

Also I am the IFLA ARL 2018 Attendance Grants Winner. I was also part of the SC Committee of RSCAO, IFLA for two terms. I believe if I will be able to join ARL SC committee, I will get a chance to raise myself in another level of Librarianship. As most of the library professionals here are not that familiar with ARL and IFLA and varies activities so I believe if I get this opportunity I will do my best to establish a gateway between the library professionals of Chittagong, Bangladesh and IFLA so that in future Bangladeshi Library professionals can get involve with ARL and IFLA in many different ways.
