Fifty years ago, in 1971, Minnesota finished an experiment: the Minnesota Interlibrary Teletype Experiment, now known as Minitex. Over the coming year, we’ll invite the entire library community to celebrate our 50th anniversary by sharing stories, honoring the leaders and organizations we’ve worked with over the years, and joining together when we can to celebrate half a century of collaboration.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate with us.
