Dr. Diana Ascher is dedicated, innovative, supportive - an extremely valuable asset to UCLA's staff. I had the good fortune to work with her at the IS Lab during my second year in the MLIS program. Her commitment to students and to expanding the many resources offered at the IS Lab was integral to my success not only in the program, but in my subsequent professional opportunities. I have frequently recommended the IS Lab to faculty, as well as both prospective and currently enrolled students, as an impressive resource for research, study, practice, advice, and professional development. I believe Dr. Ascher's efforts to expand access to these resources enables UCLA's iSchool to justifiably stand out.
