detectiveFew screenplays feature research librarians in the hero role, but the sleuthing required to find the best sources of information is a little like a detective story, especially when the quest is focused on a fast-moving story like the financial meltdown.  University of Maine’s research librarian Steven Fadel gets a chance to tell how he pieced together the clues here.  Better yet, he provides links to all the well-vetted resources at his and other  libraries:

Enoch Pratt Free Library: American Money Crisis
San Diego Public Library: Hot Topic: Crisis on wall Street
Colorado State University Libraries:LibGuides: Financial Crisis
