If you missed any of this year's fascinating Eadington Fellows lectures (sponsored by the Center for Gaming Research in Special Collections), never fear as you can listen to the podcasts here! 

Since 2007, the Eadington Fellowships have provided national and international scholars with the opportunity to use Special Collections to research different themes relating to Las Vegas history, the history of gambling, and comparative studies of  gambling in literature, history, and society. The 2014-15 Eadington Fellowship application cycle is now open and will close on July 23, 2014.
