SJSU iSchool Instructor Promoted to Full Professor

Professor Lili Luo says teaching at iSchool is 'really rewarding'

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- San José State University School of Information instructor Dr. Lili Luo has been promoted from associate professor to full professor.

Professor Lili Luo

Luo, who began teaching at the iSchool in 2007, received her doctorate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science. Her research interests include virtual librarianship, education for librarians and information professionals, evaluation of information services and usage, and electronic reference services.

Luo teaches INFO 210 Reference and Information Services and INFO 285 Applied Research Methods in the iSchool's fully online Master of Library and Information Science degree program. She said she feels "blessed" to be able to teach at the iSchool because the students are "wonderful."

"It's really rewarding to see them grow in the program and flourish in their respective domains after they graduate. I'm glad to be part of their educational experience. My colleagues are wonderful, too. It's always a pleasure to work with them," she said.

iSchool alumni speak highly of Luo, as well. Naomi Jelks, '10 MLIS, shared, "I was especially impressed by Dr. Lili Luo. She was really good at imparting knowledge and making sure the students understood what she was saying." Alumna Emily Weak, '11 MLIS, was a research assistant for Luo. "I learned so much," said Weak. "I thought she had an interesting approach of combining the practical with the academic, and I wanted to work with her." 

For the past four years, Luo has served as a lead instructor for the Institute of Research Design and Librarianship grant project, a partnership between the iSchool, Loyola Marymount University, and the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium designed to help academic and research librarians become skilled researchers and mentors. In addition, she is a frequent presenter at conferences, including the Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Libraries International Conference and IFLA World Library and Information Congress.

This summer, Luo will be conducting a study, "Health Information Outreach: Best Practices for Public Libraries," which will explore the importance of public libraries in assisting people with health information access. Her research is funded by a $5,000 grant from the SJSU Office of Research.

Looking toward the future, Luo is working on a course proposal for the MLIS degree program that focuses on public libraries in the health literacy movement.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
With the new Kubernetes offering, ClearDATA solves one of the largest challenges in healthcare IT around time-to-deployment. Using ClearDATA's Automated Safeguards for Kubernetes, healthcare organizations have access to the container orchestration to dynamically deploy new containers on demand, monitor the health of each container for threats and seamlessly roll back faulty application updates to a previous version, avoid system-wide downtime and ensure secure continuous access to patient data.
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

Earlier at Rackspace he served as VP of the Product Group and launched the company's private cloud and hosted exchange services. He later moved o...
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
