Yes, I have been selected as one of Library Journal’s Mover & Shaker for 2011. This is both truly honoring and humbling. As I look at the list of this years, and past years, librarians I realize that I am so not qualified. However, the honor has spurred me back to my roots. The areas mention in the profile are areas that I have allowed myself to slip on.
I do want to give two shout-outs to this years list. I greatly admire and respect both Bobbi Newman and Eli Neiburger. They both use technology to improve the lives of patrons. This is an area we all could learn a few lessons on.
