“I’d also like to express my gratitude to the students in my online graduate classes on LGBTIQ issues and services at the San José State School of Library and Information Sciences (SLIS). Your enthusiasm is a wonderful impetus for my continued research in this subject area, and your questions and insights have helped me focus on particular topics. Thanks as well to the SLIS administration for offering me the opportunity to teach the class, a truly rewarding end re-energizing experience.”
