Chris and Bob returned to the Long Island Library Resources Council’s Conference on Libraries and the Future. This year we had some great guests and because there was so much to talk about, we are splitting this episode into 3 parts.

Part 1 was an interesting conversation with James Vorbach, Dean of the Library and Information Science program at St. John’s University. We spoke about cultivating new librarians, their management training symposium and why library schools place such an emphasis on archiving.

We also spoke with Edward Tenner, who works at the Smithsonian and Rutgers University. We had a lengthy discussion about learning using print materials vs. digital materials and even spoke about shepardizing. You can learn more about Edward at his website
