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 Fifty-Three - "The Lone Arranger, with a mask and a staple remover."

This week with special guest Robert McLelland...

Mind Grapes: Alli's been getting back to some older, yet awesome, T.V. with back episodes of Leverage. Robert's been getting some awesome indie game action with Year Walk. Inspired by her interview with Writers and Company, Sam reads the late P.D. James's most recent book Death Comes to Pemberley.

Class Z(ed): We continue our series of interviewing friends who have just gotten their first jobs out of school, but this time, with an awesome twist! Our dear friend Robert McLelland completed a Masters of Archival Studies at the University of British Columbia this spring and has landed an awesome first job as a local community archivist. He tells us a bit about the differences in the job hunting process, some of his day-to-day work, and how the degree in Archival Studies has shaped and informed his view of the profession.
