Dean & Professor Emeritus Mike Eisenberg has launched a new podcast with Dave Lankes, Director of the University of South Carolina iSchool. "Libraries Lead the New Normal" is a new podcast hosted by Mike Eisenberg (Dean & Professor Emeritus, Information School, Univ of Washington) & Dave Lankes (Director & Professor, iSchool, Univ of South Carolina). There’s an emerging new normal. 2020 was brutal and has affected all aspects of our lives. As we come out of the pandemic in 2021 and beyond, we must ask, “Are these changes temporary and short-lived or are more fundamental and long-term?” Dave and Mike think that this can be a time of life-altering, groundbreaking, and transformative change with libraries and librarians fulfilling major roles to play as society comes to grip with this new normal. The podcast includes three segments in 45 minutes starting with wazzup with Mike and Dave, a main topic discussion (and sometimes interview) and two “awesome library thingys.” Available via www.librarieslead.org and on all podcast streaming platforms."
