Some Upcoming Boston Athenaeum Events [9:35 am]

For those in the area, I got a mailing from the Boston Athenaeum about a couple of upcoming lectures in their Bicentennial Series that are notable (this link right now points to their fall events only, but I hope it will be updated to match the mailing I got yesterday — the overall spring events calendar is here). The basic format will be a panel discussion, with one speaker supplying a historical perspective and the other providing the contemporary one:

  • 2007 February 22 — Libraries and Copyright: Who Owns What, and for How Long? Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 6:00 pm (Siva Vaidhyanathan is listed as one of the panelists)

  • 2007 March 15 — Collecting and Preservation in Libraries: Buy it? Shelve it? Scan it? Weed it? Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 6:00 pm

  • 2007 April 26 — The Cultural Influence of Libraries: Will the library continue to serve as the record keeper for humanity? Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 6:00 pm

  • 2007 May 10 — Libraries, Censorship, and Freedom of Information: Beyond mere shushing, Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 6:00 pm

  • 2007 May 17 — Libraries and the Organization of Knowledge: Where did we come from– and where are we going? Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library, 6:00 pm
