Walt Asks "Ever thought you or one of the groups you work for or with could use a Walt Crawford? The RLG-OCLC transition will be complete in September. I've received a termination notice from OCLC, effective September 30, 2007. Crawford was recently cited as one of the 31 most frequently cited authors in library literature 1994-2004 (the only American writer on that list outside academic libraries). In 1995, he received the American Library Association's LITA/Library Hi Tech Award for Excellence in Communication for Continuing Education, followed by the ALCTS/Blackwell Scholarship Award in 1997. He was president of the Library and Information Technology Association in 1992/93."
