For this 200th episode, Maurice Coleman, Kate Kosturski, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Buffy Hamilton.   The four (including Buffy in chat) talked about the history of the program and what has changed in training since 2008.  For example, there have been technology changes since 2008 that have truly impact training/teaching/learning.

At the end of the episode, we talked about the ALA Midwinter conference.  A list of future ALA conference sites is here.

John LewisOn the call were Paul Signorelli, Maurice Coleman, Diane Huckaby, and Jill Hurst-Wahl.  We talked about ALA Midwinter and the role of libraries as a place of facts and reliable information.  Libraries – as an institution – can be community beacons.  You can listen to the show here.

We talked about fake web sites, which can test someone’s information literacy skills such as this and this.

We also talked about if there have been changes in the activity levels in public libraries, since the inauguration.  Maurice noted that they are compiling their January statistics now and hopes to report on them during the next show.
