We’re very happy to report that our friend and friend of INFOdocket, Peter Brantley (someone who I’m sure MANY of you know personally), is going to be blogging for Publisher’s Weekly. This new gig is in ADDITION to his job as Director of the Internet Archive’s Bookserver Project. Prior to working at the Internet Archive, Peter was the Executive Director of the Digital Library Foundation.
Peter is also a member of ALA’s OITP (Office of Information Tech Policy) eBook Task Force. At ALA Midwinter 2011 he wrote about a meeting that the task force had with Harper Collins. Here’s his report.
How About a Couple More of Peter’s Library/Publishing Industry Accomplishments? Absolutely!
- Member of the Board of Directors, International Digital Publishing Forum
- Former Director of Technology at the California Digital Library
Former Director of Information Technology Services, Libraries and the NYU Press
Of course, he’s often “on the road” speaking at various events. You can find some of his presentations here.
Peter was also the founder and is now the “person in charge” of the private Read 2.0 mailing list. He publicly shares some of his posts/comments on his Postereous page as well via his @Naypinya Twitter stream.
As you can clearly see, PW made a great choice in getting Peter to write for them.
On a personal note, he has been more than helpful and supportive as we moved from our old site to INFOdocket.
We all know that the library world is full of many great people who are both insightful and very willing to share their knowledge and skills. If you know personally or just know of Peter Brantley, you’ll certainly agree with me that he’s one of those people.
Congrats, Kudos, and Well Done Peter!
