November. Podcast #3 (22.69 mb)

Victoria Goode and Alonzo LaMont

1) 1:00-5:00 minutes, Victoria speaks about the "average" daily duties and responsibilities she experiences----including the basics behind how she constructs search strategies & presentations. Most especially, she presents the ways she helps patrons avoid the 'kitchen sink" searching method, winding up with loads of citations and information they DON'T need.


2) At 5:00, I ask Victoria how she's gauged the mood and tone around campus surrounding the upcoming library changes.


3) 6:50, I asked Victoria what she felt were the most important needs of our medical community. What do they need most from a library resource.


4) 11:50 we address the foothold that Integrative Medicine has taken with medical institutions. The article that I mention is from the Atlantic and it addresses the success of Dr. Brian Berman and his Center with the University of Maryland. In our monthly newsletter I  posted an article that cited Dr. Berman ("the growth of quackademic medicine....")


5) 16:45, final thoughts the New Clinical Building Expo (lots of Hopkins organizations convened down in the Turner concourse) regarding the comments we received. Victoria and I shared an information table, but I wanted her take on the feedback people gave us about the Welch changes.
