Forgive me folks for not highlighting another LJ Mover & Shaker whose path I’ve followed for awhile. Nicole Engard was also named a M&S this week. I have subscribed to Nicole’s outstanding blog “What I learned Today” since its inception. It does my heart good to see an LIS student and blogger honored by LJ! If you haven’t grabbed Nicole’s feed, please do so.
Ever since she enabled internal communication and collaboration with these tools, Engard notes, “Staff who used to email or walk across the library to chat now do so on the intranet, providing an archive of ideas discussed for everyone to see.” For those who lack an Engard for their library, she’s made it easy to imitate her work; she’s documented it in journal articles, through conference presentations, and on her blog, What I Learned Today. And once she understood the librarians’ work, she enrolled in Drexel’s LIS program so she could do it, too. Which could just make Engard not just Jenkins’s treasure but ours.
Rock On, Nicole!
