I would like to thank all the dedicated people who make Artspace happen. In particular, I would like to give my warmest gratitude to Artspace Executive Director Helen Kauder for her unwavering support and belief both in me and this project. She gave Library Science a very special home. I would also like to thank Michael Galvin and Martha Lewis at Artspace for their diligence, hard work and commitment, and Andrew Beccone and Jennifer Tobias for deepening the conversation that I hope Library Science sparks.
I would also like to give a special thanks to Ken Soehner, Nathalie Angles, Francis Di Tommaso and David Bunn. Their ideas and support have been instrumental in bringing this project to fruition.
The true genesis of this project came from my mother, Renate Gugelberger. A former librarian at the University of California at Riverside, she instilled in me at a very young age the importance of organizing knowledge. Thank you, Mom.
And finally, my deepest appreciation goes to RQL. This exhibition would not have been possible without him.
