About VuClass: VuClass is Falvey Library’s experimental program where we offer classes and lectures to the library community free of charge. With an eye on open libraries and open access, the purpose of this experiment is to see if we’re able to offer interesting and quality lectures and classes to the public without a paywall or barrier between knowledge and accessibility. The program intentionally has a wide variety of subjects as we try to cover the knowledge and talent of the community and offer a spectrum of interesting subjects.
