Graham McCarthy is the Innovative Technologies Librarian at Ryerson University located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  He has been at Ryerson for 3 years, but as a librarian for only 8 months.  In his time at Ryerson, he has created many emerging technology services that link library data with social networking sites and push library data out onto mobile devices and within learning management systems.  In 2008 he won an award for the “Most Innovative Patron Service” for integrating library catalogue records with Facebook.  Graham received his Masters degree in Information from the University of Toronto in November 2009.

Sally Wilson is the Web Services Librarian at Ryerson University in Toronto, a role that affords her the opportunity to explore emerging technologies and their relationship to libraries.  She received her MLS from the University of Toronto and worked for a library automation vendor prior to joining Ryerson initially as the Systems Librarian.
