“Sonic Literacy: A Manifesto for Libraries in the Age of Podcasts”

Wednesday December 11, 2019
2pm Eastern 
(11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)

Description: In this era of podcasting, libraries should be considering podcasts not just as potential outreach projects but as an essential and unavoidable piece of the information world. Our patrons are podcasting consumers and producers; we can support critical listening, quality self-publishing, and effective discovery of produced audio. One librarian podcaster shares recommendations and strategies for libraries to engage podcasting as a part of information literacy, our collections, and our connections to patrons.

About the Presenter:  Charlie Bennett was born in New York, raised in Virginia, and moved to Atlanta to study at the Georgia Institute of Technology. After earning degrees in Economics and Science, Technology, and Culture (STAC), he stayed with the school and became an academic librarian at the Georgia Tech Library. He co-hosts the “research-library rock’n’roll radio show” called Lost in the Stacks on WREK Atlanta and the media podcast Supercontext with Christian Sager.

Can’t make it to the live show? That’s okay. The session will be recorded and available on the Carterette Series Webinars site for later viewing.
