I am so excited about these links that I think they’re worth a real post.
First, the self-promotion. We’re For You, Not Against You: A Librarian’s Take On E-book Lending is this week’s Soapbox column in Publisher’s Weekly. As you might have guessed, I am said librarian, as those of you who know me can tell by the photograph by the incredible Cindi Trainor. It would be unjust of me to link to this without saying that Karen Schneider and Brett Bonfield both brought their significant talents both as readers and as writers to bear on this piece before I shipped it off to PW. I am eternally grateful to them both!
Now, the fun stuff. This year’s class of Movers and Shakers was announced and I’m thrilled to see so many of my lovely friends of both the online and in-life variety in their ranks. Congratulations to you all! If you know amazing librarians (and I know you do), nominate them. It’s great fun. How lucky are we to be in a profession with such zeal, creativity, and drive?
