It’s amazing how many historic films are available in the public domain these days, and there are a number of historic videos of libraries now available. Here is a list of some in our latest post on LHRT News and Notes blog:
From early tutorials on the card catalog to short films that portrayed the importance of libraries in their communities, these films reflect the historical beliefs about library collections and staff.
In addition, you’ll find some “bonus” documentaries, book talks, and LIS teaching videos about recent historiography.
Do you know of other historic library videos that might of interest to library history buffs? Please send me others that you run across and I can add those to the blog as well.
