In conjunction with the Boston University Center for the Humanities Fall Forum, "Recording Lives: Libraries and Archives in the Digital Age," we are pleased to host a conversation on local cultural organizations’ use of digital technologies to expand access to their collections. In this program, representatives from six cultural organizations charged with the material past will give a “lightning round” of presentations on how they are embracing the digital present to plan for the future. Audience members will be invited to join the discussion.

The Forum is co-sponsored by the Boston University Center for the Humanities, the Boston University College and Graduate School of the Arts & Sciences, the Boston University Office of the Provost, the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University, the Boston Public Library, and the Boston Athenæum.

Registration is not required.

The Athenæum's five galleried floors overlook the peaceful Granary Burying Ground, and, as Gamaliel Bradford wrote in 1931, "it is safe to say that [no library] anywhere has more an atmosphere of its own, that none is more conducive to intellectual aspiration and spiritual peace." The building was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1966.
