Check out the vintage film The Adventures of the Special Librarian

Check out the vintage film The Adventures of the Special Librarian on YouTube!

Filmed in the Twin Cities in 1964 and starring Grieg Aspnes, Research Librarian for Cargill, past president of the SLA, and an active leader in the Minnesota Chapter, the film shows a day in the life of a special librarian as he travels to a variety of libraries in the Twin Cities, looking for help with a complex research question. You’ll see the variety of libraries Grieg visited, and might be struck by the leg-work required to answer a question that today, we could most likely find very quickly through subscription databases.

This fun and historic six-minute film is part of the archives of the Minnesota SLA chapter.

Please forward this to anyone you think would be interested.

Happy Holidays!
