About the GSBC’s Recorded Presentations

The videos presented here are recordings of presentations given at GSBC General Meetings, GSBC Extra! events, RPL–GSBC Lock-Ins, and other GSBC events. They are provided as a service to those GSBC Members who cannot attend the presentations in person, including our distance-Members, and those who would like to watch the presentation again. We hope you find value in these resources—please let us know!

Note that not all presentations are included as some speakers do not wish to be recorded and others have expiration terms on their videos and/or handouts. (Most speakers also allow us to provide copies of their handouts after the video term has expired.) A good number of presentations to the GSBC—especially those with expiration terms or which were not recorded—are recapped in the GSBC’s newsletter, The Archivist.

Please note that videos and handouts are contracted for the GSBC’s use; these videos and handouts may not be shared, streamed, broadcast, or otherwise distributed. Our speakers are professionals who derive income from their expertise and presentations; all materials are copyrighted to our respective presenters.

The embedded video player has a number of controls where you start and stop the playback, fast-forward (click on the timeline bar), make the video full-screen, and more.
