Duke Today: A Look Into a Living Tradition of Preaching at Duke Chapel. “Launched on Dec. 2, the Living Tradition webpages serve as an introduction to, and a pedagogical tool for, the Duke Chapel Recordings digital archive, hosted on the Duke Libraries website, which contains more than 3,000 videos, audio recordings and manuscripts of sermons given at Duke Chapel from 1946 to 2002.”
JewishPress .com: Yeshiva University Launches Updated Version Of The Lamm Heritage Archive. “The Lamm Heritage Archives, an online library recently created by then Dean of Libraries Pearl Berger, contains over 800 sermons by Rabbi Dr. Norman Lamm, who served as president of YU from 1976 to 2003 and then as chancellor for another 10 years. These sermons date back all the way from 1951 and continue until 1976 according to Rabbi Tzvi Sinensky, director of the archives. This time, organized by subject and date, the records can be accessed with ease.”
