We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the students and faculty who participated in this research. We are grateful for and humbled by their willingness to share their lived experiences with us.
We’d also like to thank our tireless, smart, and collegial research assistants for their invaluable work on this project. Christopher Baum, Rachel Daniell, and Brenna McCaffrey did the bulk of the student interview transcription, and Jay Blair researched and prototyped our data visualization website. Thanks are also due to our library faculty colleagues at BMCC, Bronx CC, City College, and Hunter College in facilitating our research on-site, and especially to Jean Amaral who has worked with us on data collection and analysis in 2015-2016.
This work has been supported (in part) by grants from The City University of New York PSC-CUNY Research Award Program. Mariana Regalado was awarded a Fellowship Leave to work on this project in 2011, Maura Smale has continued to work on this project during her Fellowship Leave in Spring 2017, and we have both benefited from the Professional Reassignment Leave available to CUNY library faculty.
