I have a friend who just accepted a job with a great title, Coordinator of Innovative Programs. She will be working with Curriculum, Media, and Technology Specialists to create engaging instruction and learning opportunities. We have had quite a few conversations about what libraries should be like in the 21st-century and what librarians ought to be doing. In sharing ideas with her, I gave her a list of librarians I follow online, and I thought others might also benefit from my list:
Doug Johnson, Minnesota http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/
Shannon Miller, Colorado http://vanmeterlibraryvoice.blogspot.com/
Naomi Bates, Texas http://naomibates.blogspot.com/
Jennifer LaGarde, North Carolina http://www.librarygirl.net/
Laura Fleming, New Jersey http://worlds-of-learning.com/
Diana Rendina, Florida http://renovatedlearning.com/

Gwyneth Jones, DC http://www.thedaringlibrarian.com/
Heather Lister, Pennsylvania http://www.technicallyalibrarian.com/
Michelle Luhtala, Connecticut http://mluhtala.blogspot.com/
This is just a start. There are so many great librarians our there doing amazing things!
