MINITEX Library is featured on MinnPost
MinnPost recently wrote a wonderful article about the “secret-gem” Mn/DOT Library. The library, founded in 1957, contains a wealth of over 50,500 items, and answers over 4,500 questions a year. Immediately following the collapse of the 35W Bridge, the library staff sprang to action providing an archive of information online regarding the bridge. This was not the first time the library was involved in a historical event. In 2001, the Library received a call from the Office of the President. (To know what the call was regarding, you will have to read the article.) Hopefully, many readers and potential patrons will make the trip to visit the “Temple of Transportation,” and other wonderful collections held by MINITEX libraries this summer.
