Welcome to the 2012 Movers & Shakers. For 11 years now, LJ’s Movers & Shakers has been spotlighting librarians and others in the library field who are doing extraordinary work to serve their users and to move libraries of all types and library services forward. They hail from all corners of the library world.They’ve been nominated by their colleagues, friends, bosses, and just plain admirers. We know there are many more Movers out there, making libraries better and taking them into the future.This year’s group of 53 brings the Movers cohort to over 550. We’re proud to recognize their achievements—and to encourage you to be inspired by their vision and optimism and turn their ideas into fodder for your own innovative work.Also check out the editorial, “Revel in the 2012 Movers,” the “Sneak Peek” of the Movers photo shoot by LJ art director Kevin Henegan, and the geographical breakdown, including  all 11 years of Movers, in “Movers on the Map.” —Francine Fialkoff, Editor-in-Chief, Library Journal Movers12landingMapSlug Movers & Shakers 2012Movers12landingOCLC Movers & Shakers 2012
