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-Nine - "I don’t think we should throw any babies out with any bathwater here."

This week...

Mind Grapes: We're all compliments with our TV shows. Sam's been catching up on the surprisingly amazing sixth season of Community. Dan Harmon is back in all of his glory, making the season sweet, funny, and totally weird. Alli has been watching Rob Thomas's wonderful new program iZombie and has another new TV crush. Don't worry Charlie Cox, I still love you.

Class Z(ed): For the past several weeks, Alli's mind has been steeped in the newest document from the Association of College and Research Libraries, the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. It's certainly an interesting read, but it does have some challenging ideas and perhaps a more challenging implementation strategy. Is your institution putting it into practice? Tell us how!
