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 edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan (in the same location for once!) discuss the realities of circulation statistics. What if customers could define their own loan periods? Do shorter loan periods artificially inflate circ stats? How good a measure of library usage are circulation statistics?
In this podcast, Infopeople's book geek Michael Cart looks at the huge growth in popularity of YA genre blending: in particular the worlds of fantasy and science fiction, with a dash of dystopian fiction thrown in.
In this podcast, George and Joan look at some really startling developments in library services throughout the country. Tough times call for tough new business models, and that's no joke! Be prepared to be startled, shocked, generally discombobulated and possibly even discomfited.
