Salem Press 2011 Library Blog Awards

At a time when so many folks don’t have a clear enough picture of what libraries look like, or where libraries are going, or who librarians are, we need to point to vision.  The Salem Press 2011 Library Blog Awards literally does that kind of pointing with its nominated library bloggers.  It presents a cross-section of professionals who regularly contribute to our notion of what libraries are and what libraries can be.

I made some wonderful new discoveries and was pleased to see my own favorite and most thoughtful blogging friends among the nominees–nominees selected by an impressive team of library professionals.

And, I was most honored to be nominated in the Commercial category.

Salem explains:

Blogs about libraries continue to spread across the web, with hundreds of people writing about books, libraries, and related subjects. Every year Salem Press collects nominations of outstanding blogs and a group of distinguished judges . . . cull them for the very best. Hundreds of blogs were nominated this year and, after much consideration, we’ve narrowed the field.

2011 Finalists

Forty outstanding blogs, five in each category, came out on top. We now need your help to narrow down the list of finalists. So, please Vote Here. Voting is open until June 1 and the list of winners (one per category) will follow in mid-June.
