S.S. Librarianship

a podcast for librarians and the nerds who love them

Hi! We're Alli Sullivan & Sam Mills. We met in a pub the night before our first day of library school, and since then we've been through a lot together - classes, presentations, jobs, weddings, Dungeons & Dragons campaigns - all the while finding ourselves engrossed in wide-ranging conversations about television, film, books, technology, and what it means to be a young, nerdy, lady librarian in the twenty-first century. This podcast is our attempt to share our conversation with you - we hope you enjoy listening, and we hope you'll jump in and join us by sending in a question, comment, or topic for us to discuss on the show!

Episode Twelve - "I would come back with a horrible Madonna style British accent."

This Week...

Mind Grapes: Sam may be abandoning Doctor Who again because of opinions, Alli is reading China Mieville's Un Lun Dun, and we both talk a little bit about the podcasts we love.

Where do we put this?: Sam went to a talk about the past, present, and future of the Oxford English Dictionary, launching us into a discussion on traditional reference sources. Do we still use them? Do students still use them? And what do professors mean when they tell new students not to use encyclopaedias?
