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, Infopeople’s book guy, talks about the new literary phenomenon called “crossover books,” which – in part, at least – refers to adult books of interest to young adult readers. To find out what else have a listen.
In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan suggest that librarians devote less of their energy to formatting the “right” answers when writing requests for proposals (or requests for information) and more care and thought to asking the right questions.
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.
