New (To Me) Library Podcasts

In doing some research for my ACRL Virtual Institute talk, I ran across a couple of interesting new to me library podcasts.

The Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology Library has launched a new podcast called TheBRAINcast. They've done three episodes so far including a library tour (featuring a student), information on reference services (including chat) and e-books. They're aiming to publish every two weeks and look to be on schedule so far. They've had five different people talking in the three episodes, which lends a great variety of voices.

The Claude More Health Sciences Library at the University of Virginia is now providing podcasts of its History of the Health Sciences Lecture Series. The schedule for this year's series is available on their podcast site and audio will be available the day following the lecture. There are a few older programs available now in the podcast feed too, so I'm not sure how new this one really is. And in poking around their site, I found the UVA Podcasts and Webcasts page, which has information on all kinds of podcast content. And information for podcast developers.

It was new to me too.
An Australian library brought me to this world, and it is excellent:
Podcast of information literacy information

Thanks for the Canadian lead.
Best, Mohamed
