Listening to Podcasts
Listening to or dowloading audio-files: You can listen to a streaming version of the audiofile by clicking on the Name-hyperlink.

Copyrights & Licensing: Recorded guests have assigned "limited rights to reproduce and distribute the audio performance made of me on this date in any official University electronic publishing venue." They have also authorized limited "rights to reproduction, exhibition, campus broadcast and/or distribution of this program for non-commercial publicity and educational purposes to St. John’s University." Any further rights are retained by the original guests.
Some guests have asked that we limit access to the University archives so that they are only accessible only by the St. John's Community when listeners are on-campus, thus, those recordings have not been syndicated through the blog. Please note that an * indicates that the audio recording is only available on-campus connectivity or through University VPN.
Mission-related Podcasts of Programs at St. John's University
The St. John’s University Libraries inaugurated their Academic Podcasting Initiative in 2005, with the aim of capturing podcasts of those University programs and events which offer unique, mission-oriented content. We hope that these podcasts enliven academic and student-life engagement, and help enrich the community's academic resources. In capturing podcasts, the libraries are also taking a proactive role in forming our digital “information commons" to include audio technology in the univerisity's quest to promote information-, computer- and technology-fluency in the current student population as well as life-long learning among our alumni.
For more information about what podcasts are, where to find them, and how to make them, consult the Podcasts for Research and Fun Libguide
