The CIRMMT Distinguished Lecture (DL) series consists of over seventy 1-hour videos of leading scholars and artists discussing their interdisciplinary work, a unique video encyclopedia of Music, Science and Technology. Though this collection in itself is already an invaluable research and pedagogical tool, searching videos in the collection is not a trivial task given the diversity of fields and topics. To facilitate the navigation in the collection, we developed a visualization tool representing textual metadata of videos in a hierarchical bubble chart. In this paper we describe the distinguished lecture series and discuss the iterative prototyping of the visualization tool, as well as avenues for future developments.
