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 Twenty - "...and you were working in Walter Bishop's lab!"

This week...

Mind Grapes: We talk guilty pleasures in the form of scifi thrillers and medical shows, plus Alli reports back on Circulating Ideas' fascinating interview with Cory Doctorow.

Where Do We Put This?: Sam interviews Alli about her work in UBC Library's Digital Initiatives department - we get into the process and the product of digital collections, and talk about why digitization is an excellent thing to have in your back pocket when someone asks, 'You need a Master's degree for that?!'"
