Scholar Talks

Hear researchers talk about their work and ideas at these monthly online events.

Scholar Talks are an opportunity for you to find out about the many research projects taking place at the Library.

These free talks allow researchers and members of the Library's diverse communities to exchange ideas in a relaxed and casual setting.  

You can watch them online from anywhere, on your computer or other device.

Each Scholar Talk made up of an informal presentation that lasts about 30-45 minutes, followed by a question and answer session.  

The program started in March 2011 and now attracts hundreds of people each year.
