About the Instructor
I’m Dr. Diana Wakimoto and I’m one of the library faculty members at Cal State East Bay. I am the liaison to Biological Sciences and also manage the University Archives. My research focuses on issues around archival practice and education and teaching with technology. I’m also interested in letterpress, typography, baking, photography, traveling, and Doctor Who.
I believe that together we can have a great class. Information is the key to unlocking the door to knowledge and becoming successful in all that we do. This class will help you to understand how to find, evaluate, and incorporate information into your work and life.
