I was honored to be a guest on Steve Thomas’ Circulating Ideas podcast. Steve and I discussed social media and innovation in libraries. Circulating Ideas: The Librarian Interview Podcast, Episode Twenty-Three: Troy Swanson. As I mention at the beginning of the podcast, I owe much to Michael Stephens and the Tame the Web community. I am very appreciative! Troy A. Swanson is Department Chair and Teaching & Learning Librarian at Moraine Valley Community College. He is the author of the book, Managing Social Media in Libraries. You can follow him on Twitter at @t_swanson.
http://www.gordostuff.com/2011/11/back-in-september-i-had-chance-to.html Gordon Snyder writes: Back in September I had the chance to interview Troy Swanson, an Associate Professor / Teaching and Learning Librarian at Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills, IL. In the interview we discussed a paper he published with Public Service Librarian Jeremy Green, also at Moraine Valley Community College. Here’s the abstract from that paper published at Elsevier’s ScienceDirect. In the Fall of 2009, the Moraine Valley Community College Library, using guidelines developed by Jakob Nielsen, conducted a usability study to determine how students were using the library Web site and to inform the redesign of the Web site. The authors found that […]
http://www.alatechsource.org/blog/2009/01/podcast-tech-roundup.html Don’t miss this outstanding post by Jason Griffey highlighting how easily librarians can contribute to the conversation via these tools. This is a roadmap for creating programming for users – teaching them how to do it as well as a cost-effective plan for those librarians interested in audio: The Core Nothing really happens without my Black Macbook 13″, running OS X 10.5.6. For actual audio capture, I love the simplicity of Audacity. I’ve done some capture in Garageband before, and if its my own presentation I’m trying to record, I actually use the built-in record feature of Keynote. But for […]
Sarah Long’s 100th podcast with Michael Stephens, originally uploaded by North Suburban Library System (NSLS). On May 6th, I presented “The Hyperlinked Library” at North Suburban Library System.

Troy Swanson, Teaching & Learning Librarian at Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills, Illinois writes to TTW: We have a new podcast in our library: http://www2.morainevalley.edu/default.asp?SiteId=10&PageId=1809 I decided to write up a blog post about the steps involved: http://www2.sls.lib.il.us/MVCC/blogdevelopment/archives/001650.html I thought that others may find this of interest. People new to the podcast thing may find this useful. I know that when we were in the process of creating our fist podcast, this sort of thing would have been nice. Great resource, Troy! Thanks.

Kankakee PL Podcast Originally uploaded by mstephens7. I was honored to have Allison Beasley and Steve Bertrand visit the campus of Dominican University to chat with me last week for one of their BiblioTech Podcasts. It was a fun conversation. Wechatted for almost an hour in one of the GSLIS meeting rooms, with a snazzy little device recording us. http://www.lions-online.org/Podcasts.html
I finally had some time to read about the candidates and listen to the podcast from Seattle and I’d like to take just a moment to endorse Jim Rettig for president of the American Library Association. http://rettigforala.org/ A few reasons why: In the Q&A segment of the podcast, biblioblogger Gary McClay asks the presidential candidates “What does Library 2.0 mean to you?” Nancy Davenport answers first and discusses applying Web 2.0 tools to libraries and the association, promoting better communication. Nice answer, but Rettig really grabbed me with his response. Rettig replies (as best I can transcribe): Library 2.0 is […]
