Got Questions?

Here are the answers to some commonly-asked questions. We will be adding to these regularly as we hear from all of you!

If you have any questions not answered in these FAQs, the Search page’s “Help with Searching,” or the Catalog’s “Finding Your Way Around,” please contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you.

There’s a lot here! Where should I start?

A good place to start is the Browse page where the recordings are grouped by theme, year, and series. You can also check out the Explore page for articles, curated playlists, and guides, which introduce and give context to a selection of recordings.

What is the difference between The Library and The Catalog?

The Catalog is a searchable list of all the talks that will eventually be available in the Library. The Library provides access to all the available audio and video recordings, with captions and searchable transcripts. Our goal is to make all the talks listed in The Catalog accessible in The Library for everyone to experience.
