How can Maria Abad help you?
Downloading an e-book from the Library or accessing a learning resource in the classroom is the end result of a long process that involves a whole range of professionals, including Maria.
She provides support in managing tender processes, expanding the digital collection and in defining the indicators for evaluating Library quality standards.
Maria is part of the Development of Library Services group, which manages its main services and provides cross-departmental support to the rest of the teams.
Education and professional career
She studied graphic design (Barcelona School of Design) and has continued to increase her skill base with courses on AUTOCAD, ADOBE software and ePub programming.
Since 1999, Maria’s professional career has been focused on learning content, starting when she joined the UOC group company Oberta Publishing (at that time Eureca Media). She subsequently joined the UOC Library team.
She likes to travel and discover new places, visit museums, read and play online strategy games.
