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…
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.
