The means by which we access information has evolved. Our approach in seeking and organizing facets of this new found wealth is critical. Sifting though today's myriad options, grappling with the continuous change of technology, and assuring information can be accessed in a usable and timely format is the definition of a librarian.

This exhibit focuses on changes in data storage formats and organization of information in the 50 years this building has stood.
