Podcast – Library Geeks 101
Continuing education need not be limited to conferences, CE courses or professional meetings. I have recently discovered podcasts and have found several that have helped me become more familiar with a variety of topics. Podcasts will not give you indepth knowledge on a subject (as most are an hour or less) but instead you can get a rather good overview on a variety of topics.
Over at LibrarianInBlack I saw an announcement of a new podcast series called Library Geeks 101.
Lorcan Dempsey Dan Chudnov (thanks Alane for pointing out my error!) of One Big Library has posted the first podcast of the series, called Fun with OpenURL. talks to Ross Singer at the Georgia Tech library about OpenURL. There are options to listen and subscribe via Odeo or iTunes. I’m a little disappointed there is not Bloglines link as that is how I subscribe to my podcasts but I have downloaded iTunes at home. Guess I’ll get a crash course in using that.
