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 Five - "Let me teach you how to patch Koha, baby..."

 This week, with special guest Vicki Chan, coordinator of the Out on the Shelves library...

Mind Grapes:  
The Dog Whisperer
  and his application to cats; identifying with moms in Gilmore Girls; Terry Pratchett’s Snuff; Outlander and other bodice-rippers.

Unnamed Segment About Depictions of Librarians in Media (send us a good name if you have one):
The Naughty/Sexy Librarian - empowering or demeaning?

Class Z(ed):  
Vancouver’s own Out on the Shelves Library at Qmunity, BC’s Queer Resource Centre! We talk to Vicki about specialized library outreach, volunteering, and learning how to run a library hands-on style.
