Library Journal Names iSchool Alumni ‘Movers and Shakers’ for 2015


Librarian, advocate, author, and leader are all words used to describe
Patrick Sweeney and Patrick Sullivan, both alumni of the San Jose State
University (SJSU)
=LJMoversandShakers> School of Information. Now, they have a new title of
“Movers and Shakers.” 


On March 16, 2015, Library Journal announced the 50 individuals and one
organization that make up the inspiring class of Movers and Shakers 2015,
“the people shaping the future of libraries.” This year’s Movers and Shakers
categories included change agents, innovators, educators, digital
developers, community builders, and advocates, the category for both Sweeney
(MLIS 2007) and Sullivan (MLIS 1995).


According to Library Journal, Movers and Shakers are chosen for their
passion, vision, and mission. Library advocates Sweeney and Sullivan both
embody all three qualities. Sweeney’s work has taken many forms, but his
efforts to help increase library funding through political advocacy has been
a game-changer for many libraries. Sullivan is the co-chair of Children in
Crisis, a REFORMA (National Association to Promote Library and Information
Services to Latinos) project designed to bring books and backpacks to
refugee children in U.S. detention centers.
