At the Reference Desk

Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk

1st Saturday of Spring quarter. It's 'Do-U-Have-My-Textbook' week!

Full house on Sunday (finals week)

Yikes, how do you know we're getting near the end of the quarter? Everyone's doing a research paper!

Got asked on IM if I was having a 'good day'. Of course, I replied and then asked if the person had a research question. 'No, that's all I wanted to know. Thanks!'

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.

Last shift of the year. See you in 2019!

Latest Chat Request: 'I'm looking for an article. All I have is 'Bell 2014'. Is that enough?'

Beginning of finals week -- wow, we're crowded!

(Question of the Day): "For how much time can I ask you questions?" I told him we were open till nine.

Bingo! Got my first 'Do-U-Have-My-Textbook???' question -- and the school year doesn't even begin till next week!
