Introducing the Biblocasting listserv.

The bibliocasting listserv (bibliocasting@listserv.syr.edu) is dedicated
to a discussion of streaming media in the library environment. This list
grows out of the increasing popularity of "Podcasting," or the use of
RSS and the Internet to download audio programs (like audio blogs) to
computers and MP3 players. A recent Reuters story states:

"Twenty-nine percent of U.S. adults who own MP3 players like Apple
Computer Inc.'s iPod say they have downloaded podcast programs from the
Internet, the Pew Internet and American Life Project found...That means
more than 6 million people are listening to a form of communication that
emerged only last year, according to the nonprofit group."

So what to post on the list? Examples of how libraries can build on the
growing excitement of Podcasting; Questions on how libraries can use
podcasting and other multimedia information they create to promote
themselves and provide better service; Questions on how to podcast and
other technical questions on streaming media including QuickTime
Streaming, RealProducer, and others. In addition, the list will include
postings of key articles, reports, and news about podcating and other
streaming media in general and in the library context.

Bottom Line: We are looking to build a community of individuals
interested in the application of multimedia in the library environment.

SUBSCRIBING TO THE LIST

You can get the listserv in two ways. The first is through e-mail. To
subscribe to the list send an e-mail to listserv@listserv.syr.edu with
the entire message (no subject line):

subscribe bibliocasting FirstName LastName

We have also set up a podcast for the list...that's right, you can
listen to the list. Each post is transformed from text-to-speech, and
syndicated using RSS. The RSS feed (podcast feed) for the list is at:
