Her duties include the receipt of teaching materials from the authors and ensuring that delivery deadlines are met. She also collates and manages assignments for new learning resources from teaching staff.
She is also responsible for providing authors with the guidelines necessary for creating new learning resources for the UOC's classrooms. This helps guarantee that the new materials meet the University's quality standards and properly reflect social diversity.

Mireia currently forms part of the UOC Library team.
