Who we are

Blake Carver is the guy behind LISNews, LISWire & LISHost. Blake was one of the first librarian bloggers (he created LISNews in 1999) and is a member of Library Journal's first Movers & Shakers cohort. He has worked as a web librarian, a college instructor, and a programmer at a startup, though he is currently a corporate librarian and records manager in Western New York. Blake has presented widely at professional conferences on building library websites with Drupal and ensuring computer/server security for libraries.

Sean Fitzpatrick discovered Drupal a few years ago and hasn't looked back.  A graduate of the University of North Texas School of Library and Information Science, Sean has, interestingly, never worked in a library post-degree. Instead, his career has led him through positions in marketing, editing, writing, online content strategy, content management, and web design and development for organizations that support libraries. He currently works full time building library websites.
