There was an unexpected hiatus since the first and introductory edition of our LibraryRant podcast back in December. This didn’t reflect a crisis of confidence or a change of heart, but was instead due to a spate of silly injuries. Myself a sprained ankle and Ange a sprained wrist. We were concerned that on this our third attempt to record the second podcast that a similar fate would befall our very special guest – the man, the legend – Ed Chamberlain, but thankfully he made it unscathed, arriving in some style in the end.
Between us we discussed discovery systems – specifically the Summon trial here in Cambridge, video tutorials and ‘the age of the individual’. Our charmingly obedient Currency Horse (who bring us a new book, blogpost, or article each Rant) also trotted in with a spangly new copy of Rethinking Information Literacy by Jane Secker and Emma Coonan.
Its ony 20 minutes, so get that ironing out, run a bath, or just pour yourself a wine, and click play.
