Have you always wanted to know more about the Fisher Library’s vast and diverse holdings? Or maybe you’re curious about our staff?
The Fisher has launched a brand-new video podcast series titled Between the Pillars. Every second Friday, at 12:30 pm, we live stream via the Fisher’s YouTube Channel a conversation between a staff member from the Fisher and John Shoesmith, the library’s Outreach Librarian. The conversations, filmed in the library – between our large pillars, naturally – are casual and relaxed, and based around a particular theme that will showcase many of the library’s treasures. (Because of COVID-19 restrictions, most of the episodes from the winter and spring of 2021 were recorded remotely.)
Don’t worry if you happen to miss the live stream. We’ll be posting them all on our YouTube Channel, as well on this page. For direct links to the episodes, click on the links below.
