‘Issues to Readers’, A Real-Time Feed of Book Titles Borrowed, Returned, & Requested in the British Library

“Issues to Readers” is a film showing ten minutes of a real-time activity feed of the British Library system as patrons borrow, return, and request books. The massive quantity and wide diversity of the titles processed in and out of the library are a tribute to the importance of libraries in general. The film was made alongside the British Library’s Living Knowledge project, which has a mission to make the library’s “intellectual heritage accessible to everyone, for research, inspiration, and enjoyment.”
