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.
This podcast idea came about as a result of consulting work George and Joan recently did in Northern California. The library system they were working with was at risk of closure due to county budget issues. As they worked, George and Joan started to ponder what services MUST remain for a library to still be a library. What do you think?
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!
