At the Ref Desk (1/16/19): Today's funny: Got an IM from a student asking who to contact for an overdue book. I texted him the phone number for Access Services. Student replied back that he'd call once his class was over. Um, right. [more...]

Slow as molasses at the library tonight. Is everyone watching the Hawks game?

I did see one guy running around in a Hawks jersey.

Oh Oh, someone just came over asking for an English dictionary!

Yes! Someone came over asking a question on economic history and trade! We love you!

Opps, I inadvertently scared one of the other librarians into leaving at 8pm and not at 9pm. She was going to stay and grade papers but after I told her when the game would likely end, she decided to catch an earlier train out to the suburbs where she lives.

So of course, someone is text-messaging me with the info from the game. It seems they forgot to play the national anthem and played 'God Bless America' instead. Does that mean the game is invalid?
