Great! Will these conferences be available in the archives or are they only available live? I sadly have to work thay day...

Marie - if all goes well, they will be available in the webinar library afterwards.

I was at the FHL yesterday and found the poster in the main entry said the classes would be in the first floor classroom, but that room is closed off due to construction. I asked around and best answer I could get was that the classes would be relocated to the auditorium in the museum building across the courtyard from the FHL.

Could you please also make them available free at this site in printed form?
I get so much more from reading than lectures.
Thank you,
Eve Bennett

Will the lectures be re-corded, so that if you register, you would have access to view them later?

Debra - yes, the classes will be recorded and the recordings will be available at for free through the following Friday.

Any more word on where the lectures will be held - the FHL or the museum?

Classroom B on the main floor.
