Against The Grain Journal

Charleston Library Conference 

Mar 26, 2018

Today, for episode 53, we’re featuring the audio from the interview at the 2017 Charleston Conference with Brewster Kahle, founder and digital librarian of Internet Archive. Our hosts are Tom Gilson, Associate Editor of Against the Grain, and Albert Joy, Library Associate Professor Emeritus, University of Vermont.

Each year, ATG is pleased to release a series of video interviews titled “Views from the Penthouse Suite.” These interviews occur at the Charleston Library Conference, and it has become something that we look forward to every year. Select speakers and attendees are invited to the Penthouse Suite on the 12th floor of the Francis Marion Hotel in historic downtown Charleston, SC, to discuss wide-ranging topics and issues of importance to the publishing and library world. Videos of these interviews are available on the Charleston Conference YouTube channel and on the Conference website video page.
