Rare books in action: Lilly Library video

Hillary Demmon from University Communications recently put together a short web video about the Lilly Library. Director Breon Mitchell narrates over footage of students using books and manuscripts. Most of the pictures on our web site show the Library rooms without any people, so it is wonderful to see some of the life of the Lilly Library captured in this way. Lilly staff lead many tours and classes each year. Some of the students shown in the video are part of an Intensive Freshmen Seminar on the information age.
