LJ Movers & Shakers @ CIL 2010


Library Journal M & S 2010

Congratulations to all Library Journals Movers & Shakers! If you would like to meet and see some of them in action, join us at Information Today’s Computers in Libraries 2010, Apr 12-14 in the DC area. As speakers we have Gretchen Caserotti, Matt Hamilton, Jason Puckett, Maurice Coleman, Lisa Carlucci Thomas. Apologies to others I may have missed but I’m sure there will be lots of other Movers & Shakers from the class of 2010 at Computers in Libraries and I know there will be many from previous years! So come and network with them.

Bobbi Newman’s post pointed me to all these wonderful people this morning and provides links to more info about them. I also love the post from one of last year’s Movers & Shakers, Lori Reed, on how to be prepared for this award. Lori and Bobbi will also be at CIL2010. Join us!

Join the Movers & Shakers at CIL09


I feel like I have at least some influence into Library Journal‘s annual Movers & Shakers list of top library leaders since many of their choices come from the ranks for Information Today conference alumni. We find and feature them and LJ honors them. Great! Congratulations to this year’s movers and shakers.

Erik Boekesteijn & his colleagues Jaap & Geert are three new “mover & shaker” inductees and will be seen again at Computers in Libraries 2009 at the Gaming & Gadget Petting Zoo evening on Sunday March 29th, and when Erik interviews New York Public Library’s Paul Holdengraber on Tuesday morning, March 31st.

Stephen Abram was one of the first “movers and shakers” and he is leading the Dead & Innovative Technology:Moving & Shaking in the Information World, the popular & fun panel on Tuesday evening, 7.30-9pm, at Computers in Libraries 2009. There are several previous inductees on this panel too — Aaron Schmidt & Amanda Etches-Johnson. In addition, there will be many other current and former LJ “movers and shakers” [including Lori Bell, Michael Porter, Sara Houghton-Jan, Karen Coombs, as well as Erik, Jaap & Geert from the new crop!] , as well as some “shovers & makers” (I guess that’s me) at this evening event. So join us for lots of fun!
