Listen and Learn!

We're excited to announce the addition of 241 podcasts to our Arts and Humanities databases. These podcasts cover a variety of topics in fine art, music, architecture, film, writing, the classics, and more. Obviously we at Inside Wilson haven't listened to every single one yet, but we're particularly enjoying the series on Vermeer and the podcast "Balinese Music and Dance: Gamelan Mitra Kusuma," (because gamelan is a lot of fun to learn about).

So, if you have a subscription to any of these databases

you can browse the podcasts available to you by choosing "podcast" from the "document type" dropdown menu at the bottom of the main search screen. If you just want to see video podcasts, choose "video" from the "physical description" menu.

Science subscribers: don't worry. We will be adding podcasts to our science databases soon.

We really hope you enjoy this new learning tool.
