New York Public Library Now Live on iTunes

nyplyitunes1.jpgThe New York Pub­lic Library does­n’t need any intro­duc­tion. But it’s new page on iTunes per­haps does. It went live yes­ter­day (access it here), and it gives you access (all of it free, of course) to many great cul­tur­al pro­duc­tions staged by NYC’s fore­most library. You’ll find an exten­sive col­lec­tion of “con­ver­sa­tions” with some of today’s lead­ing authors — John Updike (tran­script), Umber­to Eco (video), Paul Auster (video), to name a few. (You can get the full author list here.) You’ll also get to rum­mage around in the library’s large Jazz Oral His­to­ry Project, which fea­tures inter­views with an impres­sive num­ber of impor­tant jazz fig­ures. And then last­ly — and for bet­ter or for worse — you can lis­ten to what is cur­rent­ly the library’s most heav­i­ly down­loaded pod­cast — Christo­pher Hitchen’s now well known debate with Al Sharp­ton.

As a last aside, it’s worth men­tion­ing that you don’t need an iPod to access many of NYPL’s offer­ings. You can find many of the same mate­ri­als on the library’s web site. (See here.) And, for more cul­tur­al pod­casts, please be sure to check out our Ideas & Cul­ture Pod­cast Col­lec­tion. You’ll find a lot of good con­tent along the same lines as what the NYPL has to offer.
