CUL podcasts

With thanks to many people for their assistance, especially LDPD, CCNMTL, Starr and the Development Office, we are pleased to announce the first podcasts (audio & visual files) created by the Columbia University Libraries as part of an experiment under the aegis of the Public Services Council.

NB: these do not require an iPod or iTunes to be viewed or heard.

We will be discussing the project, as well as our presentation on it at the Dartmouth Biomedical Libraries October Conference ("Cool Tools and New Technologies:"
http://www.dartmouth.edu/~biomed/services.htmld/OctCon2006), at the next Emerging Technologies Brown Bag on 30 November from 12-1.

If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.

Sarah, for the podcast project team: Jennifer Rutner, Jeremiah Trinidad-Christensen & Sarah G. Wenzel
