Shauna recently spoke with an energetic group of graduate students at UW-Madison’s iSchool! In LIS 601: Information Perspectives and Contexts, they’re teaming up in groups for one of their assignments to make a podcast instead of making posts to a discussion board–how cool is that?!
Shauna, an alumna of the program, talked about why one would want to make a library podcast. How do libraries in Wisconsin engage with one another, even though it’s easier than ever to connect …or is it?
This discussion also included how the podcast was started (rushed and full of possibilities), how Shauna and Steev collaborate, who they think the audience is, as well as challenges and discoveries along the way.
Special thanks to Professor Jonathan Senchyne for inviting us!
Hello friends and neighbors!
Shauna and I are meeting soon to discuss season 2 of “Tallest Building”. We’d love to know which topics you’d like us to talk about, who from the Wisconsin library community you’d like us to talk to, and which prepositions we should end our sentences with!
Here’s an award we won for collaborating with the Sun Prairie Media Center! It’s the South Central Library System’s “Giddy Up Partner” Award!
We’re headed to MKE Zine Fest X tomorrow! What is a zine and what does it have to do with libraries? Both the Milwaukee and Madison zine fests are now hosted by the central public libraries in those cities. Find out more in May. We’ll have interviews with zine creators, talk about our favorite zines from the Milwaukee and Madison fests, and even give some stuff away via the podcast!
In May, 2017, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction issued a statement entitled “What Does It Mean to be Inclusive?” Shauna and Steev will discuss what this statement means and how it effects how they do their work. Shauna interviews Tomah Public Library director Irma Keller about their recent participation in the Inclusive Services Institute. Episode will be posted on Tuesday, April 3!
