Library Journal has just announced its 2011 list of movers and shakers, defined as "librarians and others in the library field who are doing extraordinary work to serve their users and to move libraries of all types and library services forward."
Three of the latest individuals to be honored are from North Carolina:
Casden and King are also NCLA members, and King chairs the New Members Round Table, one of NCLA's most exciting and innovative sections.
Since Library Journal began identifying movers and shakers, 19 individuals from North Carolina have been honored, 12 of whom are NCLA members. In fact, North Carolina ranks 8th (along with Michigan) among the states in the number of its librarians who have been identified as movers and shakers.
The full list of North Carolina winners can be found here.
We're proud of all of North Carolina's movers and shakers, especially those who also belong to NCLA.
