Produced Four Podcasts for the Beinecke

I produced these podcasts as the Digital Library and Metadata Intern at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. The podcasts are also available for free download on Yale’s iTunes U store, where I helped establish a University Libraries presence.

1. Listen Now: The Gutenberg Bible at the Beinecke

Dr. William Whobrey, Assistant Dean of Yale College and Lecturer in Germanic Languages and Literatures discusses Johannes Gutenberg, Yale’s copy of the Gutenberg Bible, and the significance of the invention of moveable type. (7:33)

I recorded Dr. Whobrey in the library and edited the podcast using the open-source software Audacity.

2. Listen Now: Audubon’s Birds of America at the Beinecke

Antiquarian bookseller William Reese, Yale class of 1977, discusses American naturalist and artist John James Audubon’s monumental work Birds of America. (28:45)

I recorded Mr. Reese in the library and edited the podcast using Audacity.

3. Listen Now: Unfolding the Corners: Intimacy in the Archive of Margaret Anderson

Famous for her strong opinions about art as well as for her beauty and wit, radical editor Margaret Anderson was a key figure in American and European Modernism. Archivist Molly Wheeler speaks with Nancy Kuhl, Curator of the Yale Collection of American Literature, about this archival collection. (23:06)

Wheeler and Kuhl recorded themselves in the library; I edited the podcast.

4. Listen Now: Steal Not This Book: Collecting and Cataloging the Betsy Beinecke Shirley Collection

The Betsy Beinecke Shirley Collection of Children’s Literature is one of the largest and most diverse collections of its kind. In this podcast, librarian Ellen Ellickson speaks with Tim Young, Curator of Modern Books and Manuscripts, about the collection. (19:45)

Ellickson and Young were recorded in a studio at Yale University.
