Susan Mvungi has been appointed as the Niven Librarian following Margaret Koopman’s move to SAEON at the beginning of 2015. Susan was born in Tanzania but grew up in Zimbabwe and Lesotho, where she developed a keen interest in birds by accompanying her father on his birding trips. After obtaining an engineering degree from the University of Lesotho she came to UCT where she obtained her MSc in Library and Information Science with distinction. Prior to joining the Fitz, Susan was working with visual media archives, and is looking forward to further developing her knowledge of birds and their biology.
