Autistic librarian's mission for the books


Autistic librarian's mission for the books
Meet Eric Robinson, librarian extraordinaire. He re-shelves books at the Family History Library in downtown Salt Lake City, where millions of genealogical reference materials are located. Day-in, day-out for the past 23 years Eric's been at it, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., as regular as the clock, and the next book he mis-shelves will be the first one.

"He knows the Dewey Decimal System very well," proclaims one of his supervisors, Pat Welch, in what could only be translated as a vast understatement.
