Library Journal's Movers and Shakers 2013
"Awesome: that’s the best way to describe the 2013 class of Movers & Shakers. This particular group may have more librarians working outside traditional libraries than ever before, attesting to the role librarians, and those in the library field, play in the larger world. Yet whatever their title or workplace, these Movers are making outsize contributions.This latest group of 50 (rolling out over the next week) brings the number of Movers to over 600. The Movers are quick to tell us they’re stand-ins for the many creative, diligent librarians, and others, building the library future. We know there are innumerable talented candidates, and we thank all of you who took the time to send in your nominations."The publication provides a map of all the Movers and Shakers from 2002 to 2013.
Over the years, a number of Canadian librarians have been selected, and this year there was one: Kate Tkacik with the Bank Of Montreal Business Research Group.
