Libraries as portrayed on television and in movies
Here's a page from one of the lessons in the "History of Libraries" course offered via EduScapes. The entire website is very interesting, but the "Libraries in Television & Movies" section appeals to me! Watch clips from a variety of sources and spot the stereotypes!
The instructor asks:
- How have libraries been portrayed on television and in movies?
- How does the program reflect the time it was produced?
- How does it reflect the time period of the story?
- Is the program an accurate, stereotypical, or skewed view of libraries?
