In a library context, most, if not all operations are supported by information systems. My aspiration is to apply the rigors of Management of Information Systems discipline to Library and Information Science via research, teaching, and leadership. With deeper understanding of the roles information technologies play in the libraries, information professionals can maximize the impact technologies can bring to mission.
