I discovered something exciting while flipping through my June 2022 edition of ALA’s American Libraries yesterday; the SJSU iSchool has hired five new tenure-track assistant professors! Their names are José Aguiñaga, Jessica Bushey, Ulia Gosart, James Hodges and Norman Mooradian. Welcome one and all!
