‘Live a librarian – Sheila Craik’

What is it like to work and live as a librarian?  Sheila Craik worked at Glasgow University Library for 37 years, and contributed to the making of a bibliography of the late Dr Henry Farmer, a musicologist. She talks about how she became engaged in this work, and, more interestingly, how this work has led to meeting with a variety of people. Behind books lie people’s lives.
