Biographical / Historical

Voices Carry was a podcast experiment produced by the WSU Vancouver Library in 2013-2014 and streamed on KOUG Radio, WSU Vancouver's student operated radio. The radio show served as an outreach effort to the campus community and provided information about library resources as well as current research interests on campus. The short lived podcast was hosted and produced by Patrick Wohlmut, a WSU Vancouver Librarian who invited library faculty, staff and others as his guests to talk about research, current works in the library, information literacy and other topics. The Library concluded its podcast experiment in Spring 2014. The show was discontinued on KOUG Radio.
