Andrew Davies interviewed by John Clements.

Andrew Davies talks about his job as the Librarian of the Marx Memorial Library.

He discusses the library building's history in radical social movements. Andrew speaks about the acquisition processes the library used to build the collection and the budget (or lack thereof) the library used to sustain itself.

John and Andrew briefly discuss the library's status as a tourist destination, as well as its ongoing value to socialist and trade movements.

This sound recording is part of the John Clements Oral History Collection.
