Do you know a rising star in the library and information world? Would
you like to see them recognized for their promising achievements? Look
no further! ATG Media is thrilled to announce the first ever round of
nominations for Up and Comers.
Who exactly is an “Up and Comer”, you ask? They are librarians,
library staff, vendors, publishers, MLIS students, instructors,
consultants, and researchers who are new to their field or are in the
early years of the profession. An Up and Comer can be someone you work
with, someone you’ve presented with or shaken hands with at a
conference, or someone whose accomplishments and potential you admire.
Up and Comers are passionate about the future of libraries. They
innovate, inspire, collaborate, and take risks. They are future
library leaders and change makers. And they all have one thing in
common: they deserve to be celebrated.
The 2017 Up and Comers will be recognized in the December/January
issue of Against the Grain (www.against-the-grain.com), and 20 of
these brilliant rising stars will be profiled in the same issue. In
addition, they will be featured in a series of scheduled podcast
interviews that will be posted on the ATGthePodcast.com website.
Nominations for the inaugural round of Up and Comers is open through
September 1. Don’t wait!
Spread the good news, tell your friends and colleagues, and nominate
your favorite Up and Comer here:
