Thank you to everyone who participated in my feedback survey! I have parsed the results (a little less than 100 responses) and I’m currently thinking through format changes.

In today’s webisode, I am joined by one of my personal all-time favorite librarians and colleagues, Michael Rodriguez. Michael is Electronic Resources Librarian at the University of Connecticut.

Begin Transmission #1
Welcome to the new LITA Vlog series, Begin Transmission. Every two weeks your host (that’s me) will sit down with a guest to talk about libraries, tech, the state of the profession, and their thoughts on LITA. Begin Transmission will provide another channel for you to learn from your fellow LITA members. I hope you’ll enjoy this first episode, featuring LITA Blogger Marlon Hernandez. When he’s not writing seriously interesting posts for the blog, he’s working for NASA Jet Propulsion Lab. He has a truly unique perspective on the profession. Look for our next transmission dropping here on the LITA Blog on Monday, April 18th.
