Thank You Letter from the Director

As Director of the Boston University Center for the Humanities, I am grateful to everyone who participated in our first forum, Recording Lives: Libraries and Archives in the Digital Age.

You can now visit the Detailed Panel Schedule page to hear recordings of many panelists and moderators by clicking on their names. I hope that these presentations provide food for thought and that they inspire continuing conversations about the key issues, such as maximizing access, bringing hidden histories to light, and fostering collaboration. In addition, we have added some photographs from the sessions.

Moving forward, we invite you to two follow-up events in February 2018:  BU Archives Round Table, Tuesday, February 6, and a screening of Frederick Wiseman’s film Ex Libris on Wednesday, February 7.  Stay tuned for more information!
