On May 30, 2011, The Enterprise reported that UCTV had opened up the Seminars Project, an archive of a huge number of seminars recorded across the 10 UC campuses. Currently, seminars appear from UCSF, Berkeley, Davis, Los Angeles, and the Washington, D.C. UC Center, but it sounds as though it's likely to expand. The project is the brain child of UC Davis entomology professor James R. Carey. The seminars are available online for free at http://seminars.uctv.tv where they're arranged by subject.
