Podcasting is a simple means of distributing audio content over the Internet, taking advantage of the power of RSS. Content consumers (end-users) can subscribe to a feed of a producer's audio content and receive automatic downloads of new content as it is made available online. A more comprehensive discussion of podcasting can be found in the Wikipedia entry on podcasting.

For the library that works hard to produce audio content such as recordings of programs or library tours, podcasting can be an effective means of making that content more widely available.

The following is a list of libraries and affiliated organizations that are currently podcasting:
