Anveshi’s quiet and self-effacing librarian, L.V. Lakshmi, has a keen interest in computerization of the library system. She has played a key role in implementing our new on-line catalogue and currently is troubleshooting the new version of the SOUL software. She is also at work on an M.Phil thesis in Library and Information Science, on an area of vital importance to research in women’s studies, , i.e., unpublished documents, technically referred to as “grey literature.” She is collating the grey literature in women’s studies available in Hyderabad libraries and will suggest how access to it can be improved.
She has an engaged relationship with her two children for who she is clearly a friend as well as a mother. Both Shyam (14) and daughter, Keerthi (12) are lively presences in their school, and favourites in Anveshi. Both are keenly interested in the arts, especially in theatre. Shyam has already played a role in a feature film. Lakshmi’s husband, GLN, is a cinema buff and is one of a handful of experts in Telugu cinema. Right now the family is looking forward to playing host to a German boy, Amos, who is coming on an exchange visit and will study in Shyam’s class at school.
This is how Lakshmi would like to describe herself:
I prefer to be an urban rural blended figure and have confidence of achieving good results if supported by a right guiding team. After my family members I owe my gratitude to many of anveshi senior members whose guidance helped me look at the world with a different perspective. Assisting kids in their extra curricular activities and cooking rayalaseema ethnic tastes are my leisure time choices.
You did good work and we appreciated it .
