Kathy's Appearance on 'This Week in Libraries' Talk Show

TWIL #36: Kathy Dempsey - Library Marketer from Jaap van de Geer on Vimeo.

On Thursday 31 March, I was privileged to be the guest on "This Week in Libraries," the world's first internet talk show about our field. TWIL is created and run by Dutch colleagues Jaap van de Geer and Erik Boekesteijn under their new company Shanachie Media. This episode was filmed in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. (If the video above doesn't run, here's the direct link to the show.)

You can watch any of the 36 episodes here. 

Please let me or the Shanachies know what you think of the show by commenting here, or on the Vimeo site, or on the TWIL Facebook page. I hope you have as much fun watching it as I did recording it. Please feel free to share it widely with anyone who's interested in library marketing!

To get a brief email each week telling you who will be on the next episode, use the sign-up form here. This is the show to follow if you want to see what a wide range of people are saying about the future of libraries!

"the world's first internet talk show about our field" Love TWiL, but I'll take issue with that particular claim. And the one that starts the video: "First Global Library Internet Show." Best? Perhaps. Only one still in production? Probably so. But first? First?!?!?!? Sorry, that's just plain untrue.

Sorry Greg, I misspoke. They often also use the word "TV" in the description & I omitted that. The description is a little clunky & doesn't have the proper words yet. Your point is well-taken & nobody meant to diss your previous show, which I used to tune in to myself. Can't debate your pioneer status!
