Thanks to a new partnership with the University of California’s award-winning television station, the UC San Diego Library has launched a new channel on UCTV: http://www.uctv.tv/library-channel/ The new channel offers content on a wide range of Library activities, including special events, lectures, programs, collections, and other Library efforts. The initial Library Channel lineup includes videos of: the Library’s recent Dinner in the Library event, with author Jay Parini discussing the 13 books that changed America; UC San Diego Psychiatrist Joel Dimsdale, who presented his findings on the Rorsach tests administered to the Nazi leadership at our Holocaust Living History Workshop; UCSD Political Scientist Steve Erie talking about San Diego’s leadership challenges and missteps; and the Library’s efforts to build an archive documenting San Diego’s technology history. Programming from the Library channel will be accessible from a portal on our home page, from UCTV’s home page, on UCTV, and on iTunes and YouTube. Please tune in regularly to see what we are up to!
