Lynne Olver is a reference librarian with a passion for food! This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio calls Lynne to talk to her about food history and her website, FoodTimeline.org. How does Lynnes library science background inform the way she researches and references recipes, food origins, and more? Learn how studying food prices can reveal further information about the economy of a certain time period. How does one become a food historian? Learn the methods that Lynne uses to research any topic, and what resources Lynne trusts. Find out why Lynne is not interested in corporate food history, and how her beliefs on information are influenced by her passion and profession.
