Designed as part of a national public education initiative (sponsored by the American Library Association) the Library of Congress is the host for this fine series of lectures by a wide variety of persons working in the fields of information sciences, technology management, and librarianship. The lectures themselves take place in Washington, DC, but for those who can't make it in person to these events, all of the talks are available on this website. Most of the talks last approximately an hour, and recent talks have dealt with the nature and role of standards in the 21st century library, moral panics over copyright and free speech, and digital rights management. The site also lists upcoming talks, which feature such compelling titles as Stewardship in the Digital Age: Roles and Issues for Libraries for Preserving our Cultural Heritage (to take place on February 23, 2004) and a rather large panel discussion titled Serving the Needs of the Profession and the Academy, which will happen on March 16, 2004.
