Infopeople produces original podcasts from George and Joan (George Needham and Joan Frye Williams), Michaal Cart, and other presenters. Topics range from book and graphic novel reviews to the future of libraries.
George and Joan are involved in lots of library projects that require evaluations of one sort or another. And in their opinion, some are better than others. What are the best ways to measure, among other things, the community impact of a library project?
Literature for young adults is very hot now, but that wasn't always the case. In this podcast, Michael Cart looks at the past and present of YA publishing, and along the way gives some great reading tips!
In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan take on what they call "the classic objections" - things that libraries say to avoid taking risks or making changes. Why? Joan says it stems from a lack of confidence in their area(s) of expertise, and the dreaded "What if it works?" among other things. Listen and see what you think!
In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan talk about cycles, as in the ebb and flow of various things (good and bad) that happen in libraryland. Everything changes, everything evolves, and things inevitably move forward not back. I'm not doing the topic justice: you'll just have to listen to get the full value.
