CCLaP Podcast 04: The Harold Washington Library Center

(UPDATE: Streaming version now working, although the downloadable MP4 is of much higher quality, for those who care about such things. For those having a similar problem with their own videos [that is, an iMovie project featuring still photos that won't stream online correctly], the secret is to save the file in the 3GP format instead of the MP4 one.)

It's Monday, which means it's time for another episode of the CCLaP Podcast. Today, a four-minute video tour of the Harold Washington Library Center; not only the central branch of the entire Chicago Public Library system, but at 750,000 total square feet of space, also the largest public library on the planet (according to the Guinness Book of World Records).
