Medical Reference Services Quarterly Podcasting Articles

The most recent edition of Medical Reference Services Quarterly features a couple of articles on podcasts in the health science library environment.

Ragon, Bart and Ryan P. Looney. "Podcasting at the University of Virginia Claude Moore Health Sciences Library". Medical Reference Services Quarterly. 26.1 (2007): 17-26.

Kraft, Michelle. "Integrating and Promoting Medical Podcasts into the Library Collection". Medical Reference Services Quarterly. 26.1 (2007): 27-35.

The first article outlines the planning and implementation of podcasting an existing lecture series at UVA. The second describes how the South Pointe Medical Library organizes and presents health related podcasts to their users. (I couldn't locate a link for this one.)

When I did a talk on podcasting to the Atlanta Health Science Library Consortium last month, I noticed that several health science libraries are producing guides to exisiting podcasts. Recommending quality pod/video casts of interest to your library users is a great idea for a specialized library or subject areas within a larger library. Add podcast links to your subject or web guides or even OPAC and let the podding begin.

Happy New Year to everyone!
