I certainly know a few. It’s time to nominate the librarians who inspire you, who create change, and/or who do great things at their library. Check out what Marylaine Block wrote about the Library Journal’s Movers and Shakers issue:
NOTE: It’s time once again for nominations for Library Journal’s Movers and Shakers issue. Please participate — we want to be able to show off the full range of talents and specialties within the profession. And please post this to every list you’re on. Here’s the info on how to nominate the librarians you most admire:
The editors of Library Journal need your help in identifying the emerging leaders in the library world. Our fourth annual Movers & Shakers supplement will profile 50-plus up-and-coming individuals from across the United States and Canada who are innovative, creative, and making a difference. From librarians to vendors to others who work in the library field, Movers & Shakers 2006 will celebrate the new professionals who are moving our libraries ahead. Deadline for submissions is November 1, 2005 To nominate someone for Movers & Shakers 2006, please print out the form at http://www.libraryjournal.com/contents/pdf/LJMoveShakeForm.pdf and return it to Ann Kim, Library Journal, 360 Park Avenue South, New York, NY 10010 or fax to 646-746-6734. Movers & Shakers 2006 will be distributed with the March 15 issue of Library Journal.
I know of many librarians who are doing great things in libraries and for the profession (luckily some of them have already been named “movers and shakers”). I can’t wait to see who will be honored this time around!
