Movers and Shakers: One more degree of separation

Many congratulations to my good friends Jason Griffey and Kim Duckett on being named “Movers and Shakers” for 2009 by Library Journal! They join a star-studded list that includes the likes of Chad Boeninger, Sarah Houghton-Jan, Michael Porter, Lauren Pressley, Jenica Rogers-Urbanek, Dorothea Salo, and Pam Sessoms (and those are just the ones from this year’s list with whom I’m familiar).

This brings my list of Movers and Shakers With Whom I’ve Worked Or Studied up to 5:

  1. Tito Sierra (2006)
  2. Emily Lynema (2007)1
  3. Hilary Davis (2008)
  4. Jason Griffey (2009)
  5. Kim Duckett (2009)

(Admittedly, there’s a tremendous benefit in having worked, however briefly, for the NCSU Libraries!)

I wonder if LJ will ever start offering an award for the obscure librarian with the most single-degrees-of-separation connections to Movers and Shakers?

  1. I actually shared an office with Emily for a couple of weeks!
