This Week In Libraries



This Week in Libraries, casually referred to as TWIL, is an English language video podcast series created and produced by Jaap van de Geer and Erik Boekesteijn in the Netherlands. Featuring Erik Boekesteijn as host, and Jaap van de Geer as co-host and cameraman the library themed talk show is filmed in the studio of the Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam (OBA) and also on location. Episodes feature interviews with guests working in libraries, cultural institutions and associated industries and highlight innovative service trends including event programming, digitization, library building design, collection development, ebooks, technology applications, online services and library marketing.

The first episode aired on March 13, 2010 followed by series two (2011) and series three (2012) with season four re-launching on March 19, 2013 in a fortnightly format. During the first season, in episode 5, Dutch journalist Wendy de Graaf from Bibliotheekblad turned the tables on the show's creators and interviewed them about the motivation for a global program about libraries and their plans for future episodes. Although not syndicated, the program is endorsed and promoted widely by library bloggers, and some library associations around the world.

The show has featured many high profile guests and organizations including David Weinberger (episode #83), Father Roderick Vonhögen (episode #3), Stuart Hamilton from International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (episode #15), Aubéry Escande from The European Library (episode #79), Justo Hidalgo (episode #77), Johan Oomen from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (episode #71), Peter Gorgels (episode #94) from the Rijksmuseum and Dan Cohen (episode #98) Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America(DPLA).

Episodes can be viewed via the This Week in Libraries website. Commencing with episode 77 some episodes are also available as an audio download from Apple's iTunes Store. In June 2013 Library Journal announced a partnership with Erik Boekesteijn and Jaap van de Geer to publish monthly highlights from This Week in Libraries episodes.

Each series of This Week in Libraries has featured sponsors. In the hiatus between series two and three, TWIL fans campaigned to raise awareness and crowdfunding for series three via a HelpTWIL campaign.
