LOTR Librarian

This blog is for lovers of LOTR wishing to find information about Tolkien, discuss Tolkien, or for librarians who happen to love Tolkien's books. (No movie discussion here, please.) It is also for general librarianship rants based on experiences or beliefs of the LOTR Librarian. Attention Spammers: Your comments will be deleted. Don't waste your time here. Go elsewhere. English-only comments please. If you want to comment in Mandarin, German, Spanish, etc; frequent blogs in those languages.


"Oyarsa" for those who don't know, is the name of an archangel (or "god" with a little 'g') in C. S. Lewis's Space Trilogy. I liked the character, so I stole the name. Who am I? I am a library science student in Illinois who has a variety of interests--too many to list! I have worked in libraries for five years and counting.

Are you a good person?

Library Webinar on Podcasting

For the interested, OPAL (Online Programming for All Libraries) is offering a webinar (a seminar on the web).

Here's the information I got from Lori Bell.

OPAL is offering a Podcast 101 for Libraries. Podcasting is an exciting new model for distributing audio content and is generating buzz across the Internet. But what is it exactly? And why should librarians care? We'll discuss the hows and whys of podcasting including how to tune in, how to find interesting content, and how your organization can take advantage of this powerful technology to reach more people in your community. The presenter is Greg Schwartz, Circulation Supervisor at the Louisville Free Public Library and blogger and podcaster of the Open Stacks blog. The program will be offered live on Thursday, December 8 at 1:00 p.m. central time. To attend, go to the OPAL online auditorium at, type your name and click enter. As you go into the room, a small software applet will download to your computer.
