At the Ref Desk (1/2/18): 1st shift of the year! Waiting for the question: 'Do you have any research articles on 2018?' [more...]

At the Reference Desk

Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk

Yes, the banging and hammering from the construction area to my left is driving me batty.

Favorite Reference Title of the Day: "Bibliography of Bibliographies in American Literature" (1970). Can't wait to be trapped on a desert island with only that to read.

Kind of hungry (as usual) and there's a quarter cake in the back room. Tempting -- but the last thing I probably need after 2 days of pure gluttony in Springfield.

Wow, we're still getting NYRB in microfilm! WTF?

I'll tell you what this library needs! It needs a food-tray within reasonable distance from the Reference Desk! Don't know how long I'll be able to hold out... Fading fast. Need. More. Calories.

Must finish that research guide...

Kind of slow today which means I get to work on my Research Guide for Encyclopedias.

Back at the Reference Desk -- first time since I got back.

Summer hours, just here till 8pm.

Last day of spring quarter (at least for me). We're closed over the weekend. Summer hours begin on Monday. It's sad to see the students go (especially the ones working here in the library).
