In the year since the SirsiDynix Institute first examined podcasting in May of 2006, there have been many exciting developments with this emerging technology. Mainstream news and entertainment media have embraced both audio and video podcasts as a method of distributing information and creating community. There are now tens of thousands of podcasts of all types included in the iTunes music store. Educational uses of podcasts to deliver lectures and other content have proliferated. And more libraries than ever are producing podcasts or considering podcasting as part of their teaching and marketing efforts.

This presentation builds on the previous SDI podcasting series by examining developments in the library podcasting landscape over the past year, including a look at (and listen to) new podcasts created by and for the library community. Tips for considering, planning, creating, evaluating and sustaining a podcasting program at your library are also included. Learn how to create quality podcasts that will engage your audience from one of the first library podcasters.
