LISTen: An Podcast -- Episode #105

This week's episode features an interview with the President of the ALA's counterpart in New Zealand, LIANZA. A new situation has arisen in New Zealand where a library may be starting to charge for loans of materials to adults. Barbara Garriock joined us via the magic of Skype to talk about the situation.

An LISNews zeitgeist recap as well as a miscellany of news bits are also presented.
