Welcome to the first episode of the B Sides Podcast, a podcast that explores the eclectic and evolving world of Library and Information Science, hosted by members of the School of Library and Information Science and the University of Iowa.
In this episode, student producers Bethany Kluender and Katie Gandhi and faculty advisor Lindsay Mattock talk about how B Sides got started, why it has evolved to a podcast, what it is, and how you can participate.
“There are lots of different ways in which you can contribute to the podcast, whether it’s just contributing your ideas, or actually serving as a panelist, in any [number] of forms.” –Lindsay Mattock, 2016
Although right now we just study to obtain our Master’s degrees in Library and Information Science, one day we will be practitioners in the field. Our time in graduate school is full of valuable opportunities for learning, teaching, exploring, and questioning.
“One of our goals here is to capture a diversity of experience and position.” -Bethany Kluender, 2016
This podcast serves to capture some of this insight to both help inform those that follow us and to allow us to learn from each other now, in an effort to enrich our professional and personal lives and make us all better librarians in the future.
