How to use a business library, 50s-style!

Standard

Here’s an interesting little bit of history, via Digital Commons – the transcript of a speech given by Bryant librarian Dorothy Keith on a 1956 WPRO radio program, describing how listeners could best use the library for business research, as well as outlining the sort of resources the Bryant College library provided.  Think of it as one of those library tour/lectures that students in the Foundations For Learning classes get every semester, but with a Back to the Future twist.

And while you can be sure that some of our policies and practices regarding such “information literacy” have changed – we’re certainly light years ahead in terms of technology now – it’s fun to see how the basics remain more or less the same.
