2010 Winner(s)

Heather McCormack

managing editor of Library Journal's Book Review section

McCormack was selected for her innovative spirit demonstrated by her creation and editing of Book Smack!, which is a free bi-weekly online newsletter that covers topics and titles not typically included in other reviewing sources. The newsletter aims to assist readers’ advisory and collection development librarians with their work. As the first issue of the newsletter stated, Book Smack! “aims to hit you with the strength of a Superman kerpow! and deliver book and multimedia information that blasts you out of your daily grind, if only for five minutes.” You can sign up for this free newsletter at http://www.libraryjournal.com/eNewsletterArchive/4683.html.
