A Truly Honoring Experience

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 am renewing my commitment to blog more frequently here and over at LibrariesandTransliteracy.  I am also refocusing attention on the Chicago Deskset.

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.

L&T Blog

The Libraries & Transliteracy blog that I proudly contribute to has been nominated for not one, but TWO Edublog awards Best New Blog and Best Group Blog.  Be sure to vote for all the great blogs out there.

So check out Edublog to see all the great blogs nominated this year.  There are some really great new sites that I have been exposed to because of the nomination process.  And, as always, be sure to check out Libraries & Transliteracy.
