Back by popular demand (and because I already had the interview recorded), it’s Better Library Leaders Episode 2! As a way of helping more folks discover the show I’ll be putting it out weekly through the end of August before my long term schedule of every other Tuesday (the ones that aren’t Circulating Ideas episodes).  After announcing the winner of last week’s drawing for an Amazon gift card and our other week one show sharers (the lists includes two of my podcasting role models AND a Monkee), I take a moment to gush about America’s new Librarian of Congress before transitioning to an interview with Andy Taylor, a librarian, archivist, and records manager at Tulsa Community College. He took a classroom filled four feet deep with 45 years of institutional archives and imposed order on the chaos, finding numerous buried treasures along the way. After our discussion about the preservation of past and present institutional knowledge, I wrap up with a spotlight segment on the 4 Ps of library marketing. Enjoy!
