Thing #21: Podcasts

1.Take a look at one or two of the podcast directories:
a. podfeed.net
b. Podcastalley.com
c. Google Podcast Directory

What I found far more useful was searching Google using "library podcast".and these are some of the results;
Sunnyvale Public Library Podcasts
Audio and Video Broadcasts of Library Programs and Sunnyvale Voices Stories

DiMenna-Nyselius Library > Library Podcasts

and the big one; http://www.libsuccess.org/index.php?title=Podcasting
which is "a list of libraries and affiliated organizations that are currently podcasting and offering selected podcast resources service"

Michael Stephen's mentioned here:
Web 2.0 and Libraries: Best Practices for Social Software I just couldn't resist adding it since he came up in the search.

2.See if you can find some interesting library-related podcasts here like book review podcasts or library news.
Visit the Widget Gallery

3.Can you find other libraries that podcast on a regular basis?

4.Add the RSS feed for a podcast to your Bloglines account.

"How to Make It New: Fostering a Culture of Innovation in Turbulent Times
Deloitte Insights podcast"

5.Create a blog post about your discovery process.

There are so many podcasts. I like to listen while I am doing other things on the computer and I believe it's an effective approach to learning or enjoying programs over the computer.
I was impressed at Deloitte's set up for their podcast, though. They use feedburner and if you click on the RSS near the player, you get all sorts of choices of what to do with the podcast.

6.Did you find anything useful here?
7.Can you see how CML might use such technology to promote programs, events, or other things?
