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 Eleven - "Why are these still here?"

This week, with special guest Michael Wynne... 

Mind Grapes: Michael discovers Neil Gaiman's Sandman  and backs Sam up on the awesomeness that is Good Omens;
Sam catches up on Doctor Who  and learns to love the Moffatt of it all; Alli plays the crap out of the new Pokemon - twice.

Class Z(ed):  We talk to Michael about his current gig as a student librarian at Xwi7xwa Library at UBC, unique in Canada as an academic library focused exclusively on content by, for and about indigenous peoples. We learn a lot about the intersection of library processes, policies and values with the processes, policies and values of the indigenous communities Xwi7xwa serves. We also talk about repatriation, archival practices, and the incorporation of indigenous content across the university curriculum.
