In 2002, the Library of Congress' Public Services Collections Directorate launched a new lecture series entitled "Luminary Lectures @ Your Library." The lectures were free and open to the public. Most of them were videotaped and are still available for viewing via this guide.
In 2002, Diane Kresh, former director for the Library's Public Service Collections, said this about the series:
"This new lecture series gives Library staff members and their local colleagues the opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on current issues in librarianship and learn more about innovative work being done in the library field throughout the country."
The lectures are presented below in chronological order and can be viewed from this list, or from the left navigation menu:
