Many have asked if there could be a podcast specifically for private lending librarians. Something designed to encourage current librarians while also helping prospective librarians discern whether, if, when, and how they may be called to this special work. Beginning on September 20th, long-time librarians Sherry Early and Kristi Stansfield will sit down with new librarians Diane Pendergraft and Sara Masarik each month to talk about what is happening in their libraries that month.
While the monthly discussions will be like Our Reading Life (with Tanya Arnold and Sarah Kim) and will probably be around an hour long, we are also recording short discussions about specific technical questions which will support the Ask The Librarian section of The Card Catalog. This first discussion is about the different uses of "Collections" vs. "Tags" in LibraryThing and TinyCat.
On this page, you can find those discussions as well as many other librarian discussions that have been recorded at Plumfield Moms in collaboration with The Card Catalog. And, don't forget the sign up for Shelf Notes, a monthly newsletter for private lending librarians! You can find all of that here: https://plumfieldandpaideia.com/the-card-catalog/
