The Library Before Google

All Current Exhibits  January 4, 2023

Special Collections presents a sample of ephemera from days gone by, for example the “elusive file,” used by reference staff to keep track of answers to questions, like what the latitude and longitude are for Brookline. For all that’s changed, we are very much still the same: The library staff is here to help patrons find items and information; solve thorny problems technical or otherwise; and as always offer reading recommendations. This exhibit is located next to the DVDs on the first floor.
