Ian Singer Joins EveryLibrary Advisory Committee
We are pleased to announce today that Ian Singer, Chief Content Officer for Credo Reference and former Vice President of Group Publishing at Media Source, has joined EveryLibrary's Advisory Committee.
Ian will be helping us map out our plan for fundraising and development. We are moving rapidly as an organization past the 'proof of concept' phase and into one of sustained success for libraries. Ian is a strategic thinker about the future of libraries as well as an effective tactician about identifying and advancing the financial health of organizations in our space. His early support for our work through Library Journal was a key part of our acceptance within this industry as a new, effective advocacy organization for libraries. Several of the projects he commissioned with us, including the comprehensive annual election analysis we've published with LJ since 2013 and our involvement with Lead the Change, have been mutually beneficial arrangements.
His bio is impressive. We are looking forward to beginning a deep-dive with him at PLA in Denver this April.
As Chief Content Officer for Credo Reference, Ian leads Credo’s business development initiatives and oversees publisher relations activities and content acquisition strategy. For over two decades Ian has been committed to innovation in the field of information services and has held leadership positions at some of the library industry’s most well-respected companies. Before joining Credo he served as Vice President, Group Publishing for Media Source, Inc., where he was responsible for strategic planning and day-to-day operations of such prestigious publications as Library Journal, School Library Journal, and The Horn Book. Prior to Media Source Inc., he held positions at Bowker LLC and Joint Information Inc; in 1996 he co-founded eComp, a web-based executive compensation database covering all US public companies, which was sold to Aon Consulting in 2002.
Ian holds a law degree from New York Law School, and a B.A. in History from George Washington University. Based in New Jersey, he currently serves on the the international advisory council for the San Jose State State University School of Information and the board of trustees for the New Providence Memorial Library.
Please join us in welcoming Ian Singer to our committee of advisors.
