Presentations from Rice's De Lange conference

Rice University is releasing live webcasts of the presentations from its De Lange conference, Emerging Libraries: How Knowledge Will Be Accessed, Discovered, and Disseminated in the Age of Digital Information (Houston, March 5-7, 2007), as they occur.  The webcasts will also be archived for later viewing. 

ResourceShelf has created a link-list of the talks.  On today's program, watch for James Boyle on Science Wars: The Next Generation, Paul Ginsparg on Read as We May, Harold Varmus on Open Access Publishing in the Biomedical Sciences, and Brewster Kahle on Universal Access to Human Knowledge.

Update. At least some of these talks are also being presented in Second Life.
