I guess I got busy and forgot to mention this, or something. ACRL has very kindly invited me back for an encore presentation of my webcast "Podcasting for Libraries" on October 1. I'll try to include as many other words as I can think of that include the suffix "-cast."
Podcasting is like an Internet radio show, or a blog with audio. It uses the power of RSS syndication to automatically deliver new episodes to listeners. There are millions of podcasts available, covering nearly any topic imaginable. Any library can produce a podcast using free software and inexpensive hardware. If you can post to a blog and talk into a microphone, you can create a podcast. How can your library use podcasting as a tool for teaching, promotion, outreach and programming?
This session will explore:
• What a podcast is and isn't
• How RSS makes a podcast work
• Free and cheap hardware and software for podcasting
• Recording and production
• Publishing and sustaining a podcast
• How libraries can use podcasting
• Finding the right voice to reach your audience
Registration is open now. I'm sure I'll mention it again here closer to the event.
