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 Thirty-Five - "A mirror of something like the neighbourhood house or welcome centre."

This week on a S.S. Librarianship Classic...

Mind Grapes: Alli gets to the art-house cinema to get some vampire movie action with Only Lovers Left Alive. Sam has been seeing some improv comedy, but also binging on The Good Wife on NetFlix.  

Class Z(ed): We talk about Sam's experience at the Research Commons at UBC. We talk about how we need these kinds of spaces to serve the graduate student and faculty communities in our universities - a user base that we often take for granted but can't any more. We hit on programming, workshops, and providing the space to get graduate students out of their lonely silos.
