Episode Thirty-Seven - "It's more about the feels than the science."
This week with special guests Tamarack Hockin and Ashley Van Dijk...
Mind Grapes: Alli is going back to vintage strategy games with Heroes of Might and Magic III: Restoration of Erathia. Ashley is following up on recommendations with Lev Grossman's The Magicians. Tamarack is reading catching up with teen land reading with the The Lunar Chronicals by Marissa Meyer and All our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill, both virtually visiting the Surrey Public Library Teen Reading Club this summer by online chat. Sam finally got on the Wicked bandwagon with the tour that swept through Vancouver this week. We also discuss video game difficulty, time travel mechanics, and the Diana Gabaldon Outlander series.
Class Z(ed): Ashley and Tamarack are library technicians - a designation that many of us were unaware of before entering the library world. We discuss the differences between the MLIS and Lib Tech education and job duties. We also touch on the relationship between librarians and techs and how to build those relationships in more productive ways. Bottom line: we are all colleagues - let's make libraries awesome together.
