Judith Hiott, former librarian, Houston Public Library

Christine Peterson is one of the most innovative and creative librarians practicing today. I have known and worked with Chris since the 1990s and throughout that time–and over various projects–I have always found Chris to have a deeply passionate dedication to delivering to librarians the technology tools that will make their work more effective, more efficient, and more powerful. Most recently, I have admired Chris’s dedication in bringing e-book technology to libraries and she was instrumental in creating a highly effective e-book model for libraries in Texas and across the country. I have known very few other people with Chris’s level of intellect, curiosity, and technical expertise. I envy anyone the experience of working with Christine Peterson to leverage technology to deliver the highest quality of library service.
