Campus Lecture Series
Humboldt State University presents campus lectures throughout the academic year featuring speakers from a variety of disciplines including business, environmental studies, forestry, journalism, marijuana studies, mathematics, and politics.
Listed here are eleven major campus lectures series, eight of them current and three from the past.
A link to each lecture series web page is given (when available) and a catalog link provides access to video and print holdings in the Library.
Humboldt Digital Scholar, the Library-managed repository of HSU scholarship, offers online access to a few prominent lectures from two past series: the Gordon Hadley Memorial Lecture and the Monroe E. Spaght Distinguished Lecture Series. To view, visit the HSU Campus Lectures community.
For online academic lecture series beyond Humboldt State, a useful resource is Selective Bibliography of On-Demand Academic Public Lectures (version 2.0, January 14, 2010) compiled by the Cataloging Librarian at Humboldt State, George Wrenn.
