“More Than Books” Podcast – Ep. 38: Current Happenings in Libraries and Literature

Description:  Welcome to the More Than Books Podcast! In this episode Joel and Colin decide to run a gauntlet of four different topics rather than leisurely explore the standard one. They begin by talking about the future of Barnes and Noble, move on to discussing publisher embargoes and what they mean for libraries (12:17), discuss nontraditional lending and how our Library is approaching it (20:29), and wrap up by using the recent passing of author Toni Morrison to briefly discuss what it means when a much-loved artist dies and how maybe we can make something positive of it (29:25).
