Supreme Court to Provide Audio Recordings

This just in... the Supreme Court announced today that they will soon be providing audio recordings of all oral arguments freely on their website. You will be able to download the recordings or simply listen through the court's website. This will begin with the October Term 2010, with audio recordings being available at the end of each argument week. The first arguments are heard on the first Monday in October, which for this year will be October 4th.

Read more here about how oral arguments are heard in the Supreme Court. View the Court's calendar of days they will hear arguments. Also, a Yahoo article explains about broadcasters requesting same-day release recordings in the past, which may provide some reasoning as to why the Supreme Court will be providing the recordings now.

If you're curious, you can currently hear audio recordings from the Supreme Court provided by the website Oyez.org. They have been providing audio from the Supreme Court since around 1993.

Future of the Book

by Sarah Prosory 22. September 2010 13:33

Could this be the future of the book? An interactive enviroment with touch screen computers? Would these be helpful with studying or writing scholarly articles? Would these be helpful with sharing ideas and networking? What are the copyright/intellectual property implications? Oh the pondering... Happy Wednesday!
