Kate Dillon: On Cybersecurity and Being WISE

Kate Dillon had a dream: to be a full-time MLIS student. Her plan to make that dream a reality was: trade a full-time job for a part-time, get accepted to San José State University School of Information, become super involved in LIS extracurriculars and conferences, and obtain financial support for her education. Mission accomplished.
