Index to Our Video Archive of Livestreamed Seminars

The Cornell Lab hosts seminars throughout the year, including our long-running Monday Night Seminar series, a tradition established decades ago by Lab founder Dr. Arthur Allen. Speakers include Cornell Lab staff, book authors, and distinguished scientists from around the world.

Beginning in 2013 we began livestreaming some of these seminars so that people outside of the Ithaca, New York, area could watch them. We’ve also archived those videos for viewing at any time:

    Unfortunately, it looks like I won’t be able to attend tomorrow’s “Hawaii’s Birds: Past, Present, and Future” program (9/29/2014). Will a video archive be made available? Thank you!

    So far I don’t see any of the seminars from the fall of 2014. Will you be putting up videos in the archive?

    Thanks
