About Bruce Rosenstein I worked for in McLean, Virginia, for 21 years, until the final stages of writing USA TODAY, Living in More Than One World. I was the "embedded Librarian" in the News section, and regularly wrote about business and management books for the newspaper's Money section. I have written about and interviewed Peter Drucker extensively for USA TODAY, and wrote a series of columns about him in 2001-2002 for Information Outlook, the publication of the Special Libraries Association/SLA. I have studied Drucker's work for twenty five years.
In April 2011, I became the new Managing Editor of
. Leader to Leader
USA TODAY and Information Outlook, I have written for such publications as Leader to Leader, Leadership Excellence, GAMA International Journal, American Executive, ONLINE, Library Journal and News Library News. I am also a lecturer for The Catholic University of America's School of Library and Information Science in Washington, D.C. The Special Libraries Association/SLA announced in June 2012 that I was one of two recipients of the 2012 Rose L. Vormelker Award for "dedication to mentoring, outstanding instruction in graduate school settings, and their own professional achievements."
I have a BA in Communications from
The American University, in Washington, D.C., and a MSLS from The Catholic University of America's School of Library and Information Science.
Before becoming a librarian, I scripted and selected the recordings for a weekly rock music radio program heard worldwide on
The Voice of America, from 1974-1988. During that time period, I wrote about rock music for a number of publications, including Trouser Press, Unicorn Times, ARSC Journal and several others . In 1980, Steve Leeds and I formed an independent rock music label, Ambition Records, and released one of the first compilations of independent rock, Declaration of Independents.
