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.
In this podcast, Michael Cart reflects on the writing of the late Anne McCaffrey, best known for her Dragonriders of Pern series. Switching topics, he then discusses who really wrote the Shakespeare canon, along with some other interesting tidbits.
In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan take a look at IT in libraries - more specifically, about the relationship between library culture and IT culture. What do libraries look for when hiring IT people? What sorts of skills are needed? What might be reasonable expectations for libraries to have?
