This week's edition of LISTen brings two interviews about cataloging and use of things born digital. I talk with Steven Bowers The Director of Detroit Area Network (DALNET) at Wayne State University who oversees a project that catalogs Youtube videos, and Michael Sauers Technology Innovation Librarian at The Nebraska Library Commission to talk about Cataloging Creative Commons materials. I finish up this week with a commentary inspired by John Berry in which I ask where has the magic of the library gone?
