ANAMED Library Podcast: Burada Konuşmak Serbest 

The ANAMED Library team continues to broadcast podcasts. We will complete the second year of this project in June 2022. In 2021, we hosted experts from various renowned institutions in the field of libraries and archives. We see that our podcasts, organized with great enthusiasm, are also followed enthusiastically by our audience! Our listening numbers are increasing every year. In 2021, we started our international guest series. We have contacted renowned international guests from the libraries and archives community. Among them have been esteemed names such as the Chair of the Academic and Research Libraries Section of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), Gülçin Cribb, and the President of IFLA, Tonia Arahova. With the wonderful contributions from each of our guests, we have started working on the next podcasts with immense motivation.
