The Library on YouTube

Yale University recently launched its own channel on YouTube and two Library videos are now available through the site.

The Librarians' Parade is a engaging black-and-white silent film from July 1930 showing Yale's librarians ceremonially moving the 1742 Collection from the old library (Dwight Chapel and Linsley-Chittenden Hall) to the recently completed Sterling Memorial Library. Additional footage reveals fascinating glimpses of Sterling as it appeared when it first opened.

Reading History and Writing Fiction, a lecture by David McCullough and Penelope Lively, was recorded in May 2008 and is also available as a netcast via iTunes U.

We look forward to adding more Library content soon.
