A Music Librarian’s Guide to Creating Videos and Podcasts is a guide every music librarian will want to use to develop and enhance multi-media skills. The digital age has created a divide between music librarians and their patrons: traditional models of interaction have been superseded or replaced by electronic communication, and virtually all librarians have felt the ensuing decline of their users’ information-seeking skills. Music librarians can now be proactive in reaching out to patrons digitally with videos and podcasts, since editing technologies for both platforms have become inexpensive and easy to use. In A Music Librarian’s Guide to Creating Videos and Podcasts Katie Buehner and Andrew Justice give music librarians the step-by-step instructions for creating their own content in both Mac and PC platforms. This ready reference on videos should find home in every library and also many personal collections.

How to Thrive as a Solo Librarian is a compilation of chapters by librarians offering advice to colleagues who must work alone or with very limited help. The contributors come from schools and colleges, special and corporate archives, public libraries, and seasoned LIS faculty across the United States and abroad who are familiar with the vigor, dedication, and creativity necessary for solo librarians. As noted in the Foreword, "In many ways, solo librarianship demands more communication and collaboration than librarians might experience in larger multi-employee libraries." Despite the fact that most of the authors are currently working alone in their library or archives, they do not work in a vacuum. These chapters aim to help librarians thrive in the demanding environment that exists for the solo librarian. Topics covered include time management, community involvement, public relations and marketing, professional development, internet-based ideas, administrative tasks, assessing and moving collections, and general overviews. How to Thrive as a Solo Librarian will be useful for all professionals and students in the field of librarianship.
