Mike Massimino

Did you hear? We interviewed an astronaut!

We asked astronaut Mike Massimino these questions for our Did you hear? podcast:

  • You've done countless interviews. What is a question that you wish someone would ask that no one ever has?
  • If you could choose anyone to join you in space, who would you pick for your crew and why?
  • What was the hardest thing for you to adjust to once you were in space for the first time?
  • What are some of the movies or books that inspired your career choice?
  • Could you talk a bit about what to do with any downtime you have when you're space? I imagine there's at least a little bit of time to read a book or two.
  • And finally, we asked our patrons what question they'd like asked. Here is the best of those submissions: When you are weightless in space, do you have a sense of direction? Up/down, left/right? Do you have any depth perception when you look out into space?

Did you hear? There's a new episode!

It's another inside story in this episode of Did you hear?

One of the best things about Interlibrary loan, AKA ILL, is the amount of money we save patrons who might otherwise buy CDs, books, or DVDs. Every time we borrow an item for free, a patron may save $10 - $30 or more!

Interlibrary Loan Librarian Kari Sime and her staff join host Dave Carson to demystify ILL. How does it all work? Can you borrow from all over the world? What are some of the more surprising items people have borrowed? It’s all interesting stuff as we go inside ILL.
