Oct: Podcasts: What Are They and What Role Can Librarians Play? (ALCTS)

Wednesday, October 15, 2014
11 am Pacific | 12 Mountain | 1 pm Central | 2 pm Eastern

Podcasts are free radio shows—like those on National Public Radio (NPR). One can listen to podcasts at any time in any place. Imagine hitting "play" and listening to NPR shows while commuting, waiting on line, or doing chores. But podcasts are not limited to shows on NPR—they include shows and stories not found on TV, online, in print, or on the radio.

The main themes of this webinar are that podcasts have unique and useful scholarly and leisurely material that is easy to access and that librarians can be on the front lines of organizing and marketing them. Librarians will take away marketing and organizing ideas they can implement immediately, as well as ideas about marketing and organizing this relatively unknown medium in the future.
