Views from the Penthouse Suite, our series of ATG/Charleston Conference video interviews with library and publishing luminaries is growing. We’ve just added interviews with Stephen Rhind-Tutt and Brad Eden to our existing collection of interviews featuring T. Scott Plutchak, Ann Okerson, Carol Tenopir, and Clifford Lynch & Lee Dirks.
You’ll notice that once again we have divided the interviews into subject related segments so you have the option of viewing them individually. (And of course, time permitting you’re welcome to view the entire interview.)
Important topics are covered including Stephen Rhind-Tutt on issues like:
- Video Should be Part of the Academy
- Media Agnostic Market: Librarians on the Cutting Edge
- Video as Primary Source
- Let’s Talk Pricing: the Need for a Flexible Model
- and Semantic Indexing and Cataloging for the Future
And Brad Eden discussing:
- The Need for Transformative Change
- Enabling the Best in Library Staff and Culture
- Retooling Library Administrators
- Stepping Out of our Comfort Zone to Reclaim Market Share
- and the need for Real Library Leadership
OH! AND DON’T FORGET…
We have also just posted video presentations that we recorded with Moshe Pritsker, Founder and CEO, JoVE during the 2011 Charleston Conference in which he talks about the Hows and Whys of publishing the first peer-reviewed video journal.
