In Episode 32 of the Librarians with Lives podcast I chat to Ann and Emma from ZSL London Zoo Library. I recorded this episode in person back in March, which meant I got to visit their amazing library. They often host visits, so do try and attend one if you can. The ZSL Library is one of the oldest and largest zoological libraries in the world and their collections are absolutely fascinating. You can access the ZSL Library catalogue here.
Stuart from the ZSL press team sat in on the interview and it was organised by them with assistance from Emma, so he’s the male voice you can hear and the person we occasionally refer to during the episode. The sound levels go up and down a bit as I was trying to capture four voices using my iPhone voice recorder, so the sound quality isn’t quite as good as usual.
We do cover Ann and Emma’s career journeys and CPD, but the focus of the episode is on the library itself. Full disclosure: I’ve been a ZSL member for years and have an almost nerdy fascination with both London and Whipsnade Zoos, which *may* become apparent as you listen to the episode.
The next episode will be released on Tuesday 26th June and stars Matt Budd.
