Bio: Sabah Eltareb is the Principal Librarian and Assistant Director at the California Research Bureau, part of the California State Library. She has worked on a number of different projects and as her roles evolved in two very distinct public services bureaus at the State Library – the State Library Services Bureau and the California Research Bureau – was able to work on cross bureau activities gleaned from those experiences. She has held leadership positions in the Government Information and Social Science Divisions (Communities) of the Special Libraries Association as well as with the Legislative Research Librarians and the Legislative Staff Coordinating Committee of the National Conference of State Legislatures. Prior to the State Library, Sabah worked in public and academic libraries, the Social Security Administration, and family-owned small businesses.
