The IS Lab's library has been isolated from the rest of the UCLA library systems, and Dr. Ascher has expended considerable and dedicated effort to help integrate it more effectively into the campus-wide system of resources. I was extremely heartened to learn that the collection is moving in the direction of being a circulating one—a long-overdue change! And her wise decision to turn the similarly long-overdue shelf-reading project into a teaching opportunity that involved current students in a hands-on project that conveyed marketable skills was nothing short of inspired. In the time that Dr. Ascher has been in her position, she has transformed the Lab from a radically underused facility to one of the hubs of departmental activity. Students use it for work, study, meetings, and projects, and find her a ready resource for help of all kinds.
