After all the trial and error I've gone through getting started with podcasting, I decided it would make sense to share this information, and maybe build a resource that others could use (why reinvent the wheel if you don't have to?). So, I have started a wiki on podcasting. Right now it's pretty minimal, just quick links to some handy stuff that I have found and use(d). Check it out here, and help it grow!
Susan Hildreth's latest quarterly webcast took place today. You can view the archived webcast here, and we are also happy to provide it as a podcast. Check it out - Susan is always worth a listen (or two)!
Oh, and as an extra bonus, cuz we're just super swell that way, here are some links to items she mentioned in her webcast:
Among the course webcast series being offered this term from UC Berkeley to all viewers/listeners is this jewel for librarians: Search Engines: Technology, Society and Business. Professor Marti Hearst of SIMS has managed to make such search luminaries as Sergey Brin, Hal Varian, Peter Norvig, and Mary Hodder available to her class and gotten their permission to video and record it for a future life as video- and pod-casts.
State Librarian Susan Hildreth's Dec 7 Infopeople webcast is now available as a podcast. Due to technical dificulties the first few minutes of the webcast audio and video were lost, hence the somewhat abrupt start to Susan's talk. As always, she provides a fascinating listen!
