The film Linotype: In Search of the Eighth Wonder of the World (2012).

 

 

Watch the film Linotype: In Search of the Eighth Wonder of the World (2012).The film depicts a “second printing revolution” inaugurated by the production and proliferation of Ottmar Mergenthaler’s Linotype machine which quickly replaced the long-standing
Gutenberg Press around the globe. The film also provides a window onto the world of those individuals who
currently operate and maintain Linotype machines. Utilizing the Information Literacy practices and skills that
were introduced in Thursday’s class, please do the following:
1. Imagine that you have chosen the Linotype machine or Ottmar Mergenthaler (or both) as the subject of your
Final Research Essay assignment. Locate at least two (2) published sources (1 primary and 1 secondary) that
provide information about the Linotype machine or Mergenthaler (or both). The sources could be a book, a
journal essay, a magazine, newspaper article, correspondence by Mergenthaler himself, a patent, a diagram,
or anything else that you are able to locate.
2. Clearly identify the sources. This includes determining which source is a primary source and which is a
secondary source, as well as identifying the author, the publisher, and publication type (for example, a book,
journal, newspaper article, or other type of publication).
3. Discuss and explain the content of the sources. What information is each source attempting to convey? Do
you think that the sources you identify would serve as useful sources for your research essay?
4. Finally, identify at least one of the many examples of tacit knowledge on display in the Linotype film. Clearly
explain how the example (or examples) you provide exhibit the characteristics of tacit knowledge.

I am a satisfied customer. I know I should have given a 5 star because you deserve it but I will give 4.6 because I almost missed a deadline because of a revision. Luckily it was minor and the writer acted promptly.
