Managing Your Digital Knowledge

Since late last year, the Library has been sponsoring a series of provocative lectures under the theme "Managing Knowledge and Creativity in a Digital Context."

'Home Washing Machine & Wringer,' 

The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress presents this series featuring some of the best-known experts in digitally networked communications. The moderators and coordinators for these events are Deanna Marcum, associate librarian for Library Services at the Library of Congress, and Derrick de Kerckhove, holder of the Harissios Papamarkou Chair in Education and Technology at the Kluge Center.

The 90-minute programs, which will run through March 2005, are aired live on C-SPAN. But if you didn't see the programs that have already aired you can see them anytime at the Library's webcast site, where you will also find other interesting lectures on a variety of topics as diverse as using traditional Chinese wisdom when making business decisions to how the evolution of the technology in irons, washing machines and stoves have affected women.
