Circulating Ideas | the librarian interview podcast Les FRBR, qu'est-ce que c'est ? Dans le contexte de la société de l'information, beaucoup de gens, et notamment les geeks, pensent qu'ils ont des choses à apprendre des bibliothécaires, car ces derniers ont une certaine expérience dans des domaines devenus clef : le catalogage, la classification, l'indexation.

iTALC Games in Libraries Podcasting 101 for K–12 Librarians FEATURE Podcasting 101 for K–12 Librarians by Esther Kreider Eash Our 21st-century school librarians can lead the way with innovative programming, new resources, and creative instruction. But first, they need to learn what podcasting is all about. The New Oxford American Dictionary chose “podcast” as its 2005 Word of the Year over “persistent vegetative state,” “bird flu,” “sudoku,” “rootkit,” and “lifehack.” 1 During the past 2 years, podcasting has become increasingly familiar as a method of information sharing. Yet when I queried 100 librarians during my presentation on professional development at the American Association of School Librarians meeting in October 2005, not one hand went up to indicate that anyone had accessed or listened to a podcast.
