I am Modestus Tabi, a student at Sokoine University of Agriculture pursuing a Bachelor degree in Information and Records Management. I was privileged to work in the Acquisition, Cataloguing and classification section and managed to attain various skills including: differentiating the subject headings and title of a document; using Subject Headings and Indexes; making Spine Labels; Data Entry in the Library Database and creating a document’s Call Number. I am very thankful to Cataloguing staff for their dignity and cooperation.
