Dr. Ascher works with many people across different specializations because she is authoritative in many library and research topics. She has thought about innovative and creative uses for the IS Lab, in order to improve the space for learning and research. She is always helpful and is willing to offer ideas for approaches to the use of different zones in the lab. She is enthusiastic about the lab, and the IS department's role in the UCLA library and University environment. Under her leadership, I see the lab becoming and interactive space for not only students in the MLIS program, but the UCLA community as a whole in the coming years.
