In Autumn 2022 Georgina Gianni from Athens worked with us in Dublin City Library and Archive on an Erasmus Plus placement from her college, University of West Attica in Greece. Georgina brought her enthusiasm and energy along with her knowledge of libraries and archives to DCLA and we really enjoyed having her as part of the team and we miss her cheerful presence!
