This is one of five videos comprising “Behind the Scenes: Staff and Researchers at the Huntington Library,” which gives visitors a peek into the inner workings of a library that is normally off public view. The videos focus on day-to-day processes—and personalities—of a conservator, curator, archivist, page, and “reader” (The Huntington’s term for a scholar/researcher). They can be viewed on iPads in “The Library Today,” an education display in the room adjacent to “Remarkable Works, Remarkable Times.” Read more at huntingtonblogs.org/2014/04/videos. Find the rest of the set at Behind the Scenes: Staff and Researchers at the Huntington Library.
