This week's episode is light in recognition of the ALA Annual hang over. We feature a music break by northeast Ohio band Antiquitous. The song "Ed and Elaine's Promenade" is from their upcoming album "Nexus of the Ley Lines" and was composed by Mister Engineer. Antiquitous describes themselves with: "New melodies from ancient voices for a modern world."
This week's second episode brings the essay that was teased out earlier about libraries needing to take stands to bolster their identity. The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, the counterpart in the United Kingdom to the ALA, is mentioned. Thursday's bit of Profile America is also presented.
This week's first episode brings a teaser discussing the difference between rattling off stats and talking about benefit statements for individuals. This will be further explored later this week. LISTen #156 is scheduled for release Wednesday.
