fun thing – Uncontrolled Vocabulary

*over the past few months i’ve discovered oh-so-many blogs and podcasts that i consider required reading/listening. i’m going to try and blog weekly about one of them and why i think LIS students – hell, even regular library-folk – ought to check them out.*

Uncontrolled Vocabulary is “A weekly live interactive roundtable discussion of all things library”. the podcast is recorded Wednesday nights at 10pmEST and here’s the kicker, ANYONE can join in (thanks to TalkShoe). if you can’t join in during the recording, you can always check out the podcast which is posted to the blog shortly after the recording. (and downloadable from TalkShoe.)

the issues to be discussed are posted before the show is recorded, and they are always timely. and the invited guests are, frankly, some. really. interesting. folk.

i can’t recommend it enough. i’m busy catching up on all 33 previous episodes.

oh, and i found out about it through the Twittersphere – which continues to amaze me as a LIS resource.

    I keep wanting to call in myself! 10pm is just a tough time for me on a weeknight, more so this semester since I’ve got an 8-10 class.

    […] saddens me because the show was one of the first LIS-related but non-library school things i discovered out there on the intertubes. talking about real life LIS issues! getting the dirt on […]
