Iowa State University: 1,000+ ISU lectures now online

This is from the end of July, and I missed it, and it’s TOO GOOD TO MISS. Iowa State University: 1,000+ ISU lectures now online. “The Iowa State University Library is pleased to announce the completion of a grant project funded by the National Recording Preservation Foundation (NRPF) to digitize and provide online access to 991 recordings from the ISU Lecture Series. The recordings, which span the 1970s-1990s, were selected based on their significant cultural, historical, and aesthetic value, as well as timeliness with respect to topics that our country is grappling with today, which include race, gender, and sexuality—just to name a few. In selecting the content for this project, we join calls across the country to center and magnify these voices and movements, and to affirm ISU’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.” I spot-checked several lectures. Everything had transcripts.
