Time to nominate your favorite library Mover & Shaker

Know a deserving government documents librarian doing good work to further the profession? Then you’ll want nominate them for a Movers&Shakers award. Marylaine Block, writer and internet librarian, has asked me to forward this announcement far and wide regarding nominations for this year’s Library Journal Movers&Shakers award. If you know someone deserving of this honor, please consider nominating them. And if you happen to have already submitted a nomination, please go back to the form (link below) and resubmit it because LJ had a little technical snafu and lost all submissions done before November 5. Marylaine tells me that the deadline has been extended to November 28.

Once again I am the primary writer for Library Journal’s Movers and Shakers issue, and we are now soliciting nominations for this honor. Could you help spread the word to both govdocs librarians and radical librarians?  Here’s the announcement:

It’s time once again for nominations for Library Journal’s Movers and Shakers issue. This supplement to the March 15, 2008 issue will profile "50-plus up-and-coming individuals from across the United States and Canada who are innovative, creative, and making a difference" in the profession.

If you’ve ever wondered, "Why aren’t they profiling more [fill in the blank: sci-tech librarians, archivists, library consortium staff, independent information professionals, library marketing staff, local history librarians, library consultants or vendors, library program directors, or whatever your own specialization is"], keep in mind that we can only write about people who get nominated in the first place!
