At the Reference Desk
Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk
Slow night at ye olde Whyberry. Is everybody off to din-din?
'Where's your card catalog?' And Jimmy Carter is still president?
"Since the only available version of this book is online, could you print the thing out for me?"
Favorite question of the evening, "Where's the exit?"
Whole lotta 'look-ups' goin' on.
First day back after Easter/Spring Break. We're deep into 'Have-you-got-my-textbook-first-week-of-the-quarter' season.
2nd to last day of finals. Kind of slow -- thank God, since I'm still a bit under the weather (and I'm not the only one).
Got a 'I-wrote-the-paper-and-now-I-need-a-couple-of-sources' question again.
'I need to find 10 references for my topic -- Can I use my text book as a reference?'
Hmm, Treasure Hunt going on at the library; groups of 10-12 year olds (with escorts, thank God), trying to figure out who the library was named after.
