At the Reference Desk

Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk

Getting a lot of nice thank-you's this evening... #ChatReference #NationalLibraryWeek

Deciding what is ‘scholarly’ is not a library but rather an academic decision.

At the [Chat] Reference Desk: Um, happy Finals Week!

Hoo, big big day for reference questions! (#chatRef)

First shift of the year!

ChatRef (Best question of the day): 'Are you an actual person or a bot?' P.S. Last shift of the year.

Why I prefer the radio (i.e. audio) version of PBS's Newshour: the people are less ugly.

Worst thing about chat reference : the number of times you get cut off. Sucks.

Today's high point: Three research questions all at once via chat -- plus a knock on my door from a neighbor locked out of her apartment.

Next Tuesday (i.e. day after Labor Day) is beginning of the new Academic Year! Yowza!
