An Update to Yesterday’s Shout Out

Thanks to all of you who’ve written to me about yesterday’s post; it just seemed the natural thing to do to acknowledge all the work and skill my colleagues here have given to us over the years, and I’m glad it’s been welcomed by so many. I’d especially like to thank retiring colleagues who’ve written asking me to add them to the list, and to others who’ve sent me suggestions for additions. Considering the decentralized, and, in some cases, far-flung locations of libraries here, I’m especially struck by the sense of community and appreciation for each other the messages I’ve received have expressed.

I’m posting this little update today because I did get so many more names since the list was first posted, so those of you wanting to see an up-to-date listing may want to take another look at yesterday’s post.

My thanks to you all,

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
