v28 #3 ATG Special Report — Industry Consolidation in the Information Services and Library Environment: Perspectives from Thought Leaders by David Parker

On today’s episode, we will hear from three of the people most responsible for all the great content you have come to expect from the Against The Grain journal. They are Katina Strauch, Tom Gilson and Leah Hinds. Once again, in what will become a regular weekly feature of the podcast, we hear rumors and announcements from Katina. Then we hear excerpts from the article by David Parker on Industry Consolidation in the Information Services and Library Environment.

The original plan was to get everyone together to record this week’s podcast, but mother nature had her way and sent several rounds of thunderstorms through our area. As a result, Leah Hinds lost power and was under a tornado warning and couldn’t join us. But being the trooper she is, when things came back up, she recorded her portion of the podcast. If you recall back on episode sixteen of the Against The Grain Podcast, Leah mentioned that she lives in a rural area with goats, chickens and rabbits. Well, if you pay close attention to Leah’s comments, you can hear Brewster the rooster chime in from time to time along with thunder in the background.
