I’m a professor at the School of Information at San Jose State University. My primary areas of teaching and research interests include information access and services in the digital age, library and information science (LIS) education, research methods, academic librarianship and health information services. I’m generally interested in exploring how technological progress and social paradigm shift impact people’s information behavior and information services provided by libraries and other information organizations. Also, I’m passionate about promoting and supporting practitioner research in LIS, and I’m an instructor for Institute for Research Design in Librarianship, a national program that provides professional development opportunities for academic librarians to enhance their research competencies.
