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-Three - "I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords."

This week... (SPOILER WARNING: Mild Sherlock Season 3 spoilers)

Mind Grapes: Sam is working her way through Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force, and her discovery of video games is adorable. Spoiler warning: she is a menace to her crew. Alli's all caught up with Sherlock and both loves and hates figuring out the mystery before it is revealed. We also talk about the evolution of TV, and supplementary content from shows and web series.  

Where Do We Put This: Where do we put social media in the library? How does the library create a social media persona? How do libraries navigate having several social media accounts? We're not answering these questions, really. More like just asking them. Plus a discussion of how libraries can teach patrons about social media.
