Easy Listening: Archives and Records Management Podcasts

By now, many archivists have had the opportunity to listen to (or have at least heard of) More Podcast, Less Process, the excellent podcast series hosted by Jefferson Bailey of the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) and Joshua Ranger of AudioVisual Preservation Solutions. Listening is a great way to stay abreast of trends in our field, and hear a little more about the all of the unique and inspiring projects our colleagues are working on. One of my favorite episodes is on the topic of shared services and institutional collaboration. Take a listen!

61250519f57d60b84847b5478861769cI recently discovered the IRMS Podcast Series a records management themed podcast produced by the UK’s Information and Records Management Society. Hosts Heather Jack and James Lappin discuss key records management trend and issues with leaders in the profession. Recent topics covered included automated intelligence, a SharePoint case study and even records management theory. I especially enjoyed listening to episode IRMS013 – Laurence Hart on trends in collaboration and records management software.

If anyone else knows of other podcasts that would be of interest to archivists and records managers, please share in the comments!

    1. Indeed, we’re on a pretty extended hiatus right now. 🙂 It’s just me left, and I’ve been really busy with a lot of other things (like a cheese podcast!).

      All of our 10 episodes are still up, though.

  1. Thanks for this great post, Meg! I’m a big fan of More Podcast, Less Process and am excited to check out the IRMS Podcast Series. The Georgia Tech Library hosts a research library rock ‘n’ roll radio show/podcast called “Lost in the Stacks,” and we frequently interview archivists and cover topics related to archives and records: https://twitter.com/LibraryRadio, http://lostinthestacks.libsyn.com/, https://www.facebook.com/LostIntheStacks, https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/lost-in-the-stacks/id692734472?mt=2. Let us know if you listen and have suggestions about the show!
