Each year, GSLIS presents a number of cutting-edge lectures that address critical and timely topics in library and information science.
In accordance with the Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act of 2008, lecture transcripts are available upon request. Please contact help [at] support [dot] lis [dot] illinois [dot] edu with your request. We ask that you allow 2 weeks for transcription and we reserve the right to ask for more time, depending upon limited captioning capacity.
Some sessions are available only to current GSLIS faculty, staff, and students.
