The University of Colorado Boulder Libraries has its own podcast! It’s called CU at the Libraries, and it’s where information becomes knowledge through storytelling. 

This podcast is for anyone curious about the University Libraries. There will be nine episodes in this first season, starting with a tour of Norlin Library.

Producer Claire Woodcock Interviews Libraries Building Manager Carl Stewart

Later episodes include interviews with experts on open access, a roundtable conversation between students about the difficult experiences that shape our stories, and more! 

CU at the Libraries uses narrative storytelling, two-way interviews, and roundtable discussions with different hosts each week to represent the breadth of voices and personalities that make up our community. 

Last year the Libraries made podcasting equipment available to students through the Multimedia Equipment Lending Library. Now we’re sharing our own stories weekly for people interested in the science of information and the inner workings of research libraries.

Nikhil Thapa, a junior biochemistry major at CU Boulder, won a contest last spring to have his original composition featured as the show’s theme music. 

Dozens of faculty, staff, students, and experts were interviewed across the making of this season. Each branch of the libraries played a role in the making of CU at the Libraries and the Earth Sciences & Map Library hosts our podcast recording studio. 

CU at Norlin Library is the first podcast episode from the University Libraries. Episodes air weekly on Mondays. CU at the Libraries can be heard on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. Please listen, leave a review, and share CU at the Libraries with your friends!

We can't wait to see you at the Libraries!
