New Minitex Oral History: Jerry Baldwin

| No Comments

A new addition to the Minitex Oral History Project has been posted on the Minitex website.

Jerry Baldwin's first library job was as a student at the St. Paul Campus Library (now Magrath Library). From there he went to library school at the University of Minnesota, and then on to the Minnesota Department of Highways (now the Minnesota Department of Transportation) Library as Director from 1972-2007.

In his interview, he talks about the Minitex Union List of Serials (MULS) staff visiting the MnDOT library to record their serial holdings, the development of the Transportation Libraries Catalog (TransCat) as one of the first OCLC Group catalogs, creation of the National Transportation Library (1998) and the Transportation Knowledge Networks, and reauthorization of the National Transportation Library.
