I have spent some time this week exploring the world of podcasting.  There’s a lot of interesting recorded information and entertainment out there.  Podcasting seems to have much more commercial “infiltration” than the other 2.0 features we’ve used.  I have not yet found that many library generated podcasts, but I’m not done looking (I have to spend more time on I-Tunes).  I have been thinking of library applications.  Perhaps the most obvious is as a suggested source of information for patrons.  Imagine doing an author study and being able to listen to the author discuss his/her work!  Podcasting with a video component (vodcasting?) could also be a useful tool to introduce patrons to library resources such as genealogy databases, or downloadable audio books, etc.  Libraries in multilingual communities could also provide podcasts in other languages.

Let us know when you find some good stuff! You might like this. It’s kind of like a podcast, don’t you think? Or lots of mini podcasts. It’s pronunciations of children’s authors’ names.
