At the Reference Desk

Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk

Interesting coincidence -- the colleague at Circulation, plus the student worker, plus your's truly -- we all worked as high school students in our high school libraries. Support your local High School Library!

2nd student in a week's time to ask, 'What's a call number?'

(Question of the Day) 'Call number? Does that mean you have to call someone to get the book?' Um, maybe 100 years ago.

Nice, busy evening. Students working on assignments, looking for 'peer reviewed' 'scholarly' articles.

Oy, 2nd Ethics/Compliance test of the year. (2 jobs, 2 tests). Feel like going out and robbing a bank and biting someone in the leg.

At the Ref Desk: 1st shift of the year. Kinda slow but looking at the schedule, I'm by myself for a couple of Saturdays so that ought to be wild!

Last shift of the year.

Near the end of the quarter. Full house.

Flu shot and annual ethics review test -- survived both.

Interesting night. Research questions on everything from "food deserts in Chicago" to "Hemingway in Paris".
