Congrats to Brian Kenney, New Editor of School Library Journal

School Library Journal has a new editor. Brian Kenney, Library Journal’s executive editor, technology & web, has been promoted to editor-in-chief of School Library Journal, effective August 1. He succeeds Evan St. Lifer, who left in June to join Scholastic Library Publishing as VP and general manager.

I have been so lucky to work with Brian these last few months. I have learned a lot from him about writing, libraries and the “big picture.” Brian gets libraries big time and he understands the place where libraries and technology meet! Best wishes…

Oh, and:

In 2004, he received a federal Institute of Museum and Libraries Services fellowship for study in the interdisciplinary Ph.D. program at the University of North Texas, Denton. This Web-enhanced doctoral program supports a cohort group engaged in researching school or public library issues.
