Josh Neff, graduate of the School of Information Studies at UW-Milwaukee, was recently named one of Library Journal’s Movers and Shakers in the category of Change Agents. Neff, who graduated in 2005, was chosen for his work helping to build the Library Society of the World (LSW), an online social-network devoted to professional issues and services in librarianship. With colleague and fellow LSW founder, Steve Lawson, Neff has attracted hundreds of librarians to their chat room on Meebo as well as their groups on FriendFeed and LinkedIn.
The Library Journal's Movers and Shakers honors librarians of all kinds across the world who are considered to be shaping the future of libraries. This year, 50 librarians were selected for this recognition. For the complete list of Movers and Shakers, visit http://www.libraryjournal.com/?layout=MS2010
