Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk

Today is International 'Can You Help Me With My Research Paper' Day.

1st research consultation of the school year! (Lasted over an hour).

How do I know it's close to the start of the school year? Student asks me: 'Where can I borrow the Norton Anthology of American Literature'?

Weird Request of the Week (WRW): patron needed help logging into a pc workstation with scanner. After I helped her log in she asked, 'can I fax from here?'

Finals Week: Students doing a ton of work. Hats off!

Question du Jour: When I send an email, should the email addresses be Ladies first?

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!'
