The C-SPAN Video Library records, indexes, and archives all C-SPAN programming for historical, educational, research, and archival uses. Every C-SPAN program aired since 1987, now totaling over 170,000 hours, is contained in the C-SPAN Archives and immediately accessible through the database and electronic archival systems developed and maintained by the C-SPAN Archives.
The Archives records all three C-SPAN networks seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. Programs are extensively indexed making the database of C-SPAN programming an unparalleled chronological resource. Programs are indexed by subject, speaker names, titles, affiliations, sponsors, committees, categories, formats, policy groups, keywords, and location. The congressional sessions and committee hearings are indexed by person with full-text. The video collection can be searched through the online Video Library.
All C-SPAN programs since 1987 are digital and can be viewed online for free. Duplicate copies of programs that have aired since 1987 can be obtained and used for education, research, review or home viewing purposes. Proceeds from the sale of these programs help support the operation of the Archives. Some programs are not copyright cleared for sale.
The Archives began within the Purdue University School of Liberal Arts in 1987. In July 1998, C-SPAN assumed responsibility for the archival operations and the facilities were moved from the Purdue University campus to the Purdue Research Park in West Lafayette, Indiana. The indexing, abstracting, and cataloging of C-SPAN programs is the responsibility of the C-SPAN Archives staff.

Distance learning technologies can be used to deliver lectures and to facilitate discussions between geographically dispersed groups. I designed an internet-videoconferencing system (Dr. PiB) that can be used to help students identify anatomical structures in the gross anatomy dissection lab at a remote site. The students were willing to use the system, were enthusiastic about the system, found it useful, and wanted to see its use expanded. I then modified Dr. PiB to make it WiFi capable and mobile. This allowed Dr. PiB to be used to guide/assist the students with performing their own dissections at a remote site. I am now modifying the system again to make use of post-PC technologies such as the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Thomas Jefferson's interests in the fields of philosophy, science, foreign languages, and the arts and humanities determined the Library's collection policies and have produced a national library that is the custodian of America's institutional and cultural memory. Today, the Library holds millions of multimedia primary materials online, with countless more in analog form, in over 460 languages. To make these materials accessible to the public, Library staff engage in a wide range of activities, from hosting seminars, concerts, speaker series, and special events to developing resources and programs for higher education, K12 education, researchers, and the public.
In this session, you will visit the Library and speak with staff who will introduce you to the Library's holdings, demonstrate how they might be used to engage students, and describe opportunities available via video conference, such as the recent event for community colleges hosted by Kay Ryan during her tenure as Poet Laureate of the United States.

Through the convergence of live theatre and technology, a world of new possibilities is being created for the performing artist. Virtual, immersive, and interactive environments, avatar performers, and telematic performances are just a portion of the technological tools creatively being utilized by theatre artists to enhance their ability to tell a story. This presentation will explore several of the advances being made in integrating technology into performance with an emphasis on the the use of high-bandwidth Internet networks to collaborate and create from extreme distances.
About the Presenter:
George H. Brown has worked in the professional and university theatre for over 20 years filling a gamut of positions from Director to Actor to Fight Choreographer. He has directed over 100 productions in theatres across the U.S., Caribbean and Europe and has been actively engaged in mediated theater since the 1980’s. His research and creative production has focused on live video integration, multi-screen and non-traditional surface projection techniques, mediated performance, and, most significantly, telematic performance, which takes advantage of high bandwidth Internet2 connectivity to join artists and technologists from around the world to collaborate and present theatre events that push the technological and creative envelope. His mediated creative activity has gained considerable attention with coverage from Discovery Channel News, Backstage (East and West Coast editions), Chicago City Arts Review, Live Design, and Southern Theatre to name a few. He and his collaborators have been awarded the ORION Learning Award of Merit, Theodore C. Burgess Award for Collaboration, the 2008 Internet2 IDEA Award , and the CASE Gold Award for their mediated creative production.
