Library Journal named Jason Paul Michel, user experience librarian at Miami University, one of its "Movers & Shakers 2013-Tech Leaders" for his innovations in using the latest technology to reach students.

“He’s very aware of the changing role of libraries. He strives to develop ways in which we may continue to be relevant in a fast-paced, hyper digital world,” said Eli Sullivan, Miami psychology librarian, who was quoted in the Library Journal’s March announcement.

Michael is credited with developing several forward-thinking digital services and tools that include: the library’s mobile website; a social media plan that includes connecting with students through the use of Twitter; a program that automatically uploads digitized historic images to; and his new book Web Service APIs and Libraries (ALA Editions, 2013).
