So these were the "old days"

Through the Shades of Mediocrity blog, I found a link from the Internet Archive to a 1947 Vocational Guidance film about librarianship as a career. It is interesting if nothing else to see how librarians were viewed back then. We definitely have come a long way. You will pretty much see every stereotype of librarians in this film, but if you can get past that, it makes for interesting viewing. It is only about ten minutes long. You can view or download, but I warn people they use QuickTime as the preferred player. Anyone with an interest in the history of our profession may be interested in this as well.
