Libraries and the Birth of Commercial Radio

by Chris Kretz
There was no such thing as commercial radio in the United States until the early 1920s. Then things exploded in an era of experimentation and innovation.

Many public libraries were active as participants in these early days and my research seeks to uncover the earliest library broadcasts and the connections that brought them to the airwaves.

The Global Library Initiatives at Stony Brook University: An Update

by Michael B. Huang

Since its establishment in September 2014, the Office of Global Library Initiatives at Stony Brook University has worked closely with academic and clinical departments and the Office of Global Affairs to identify international initiatives, programs, and activities in order to focus the Library’s efforts to the areas that are most critical to SBU success. This presentation provides an update on recent activities including: a visit to SUNY Korea, presenting at an international conference, initiating and establishing formal relationships with two academic libraries in China, and cultivating visiting librarian program.
