At the Reference Desk

Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk

Finals, finals, finals...

Another day, another research consultation.

1st research consultation for 2015.

Last evening of the year. Back in 2015!

8 Hours at the Ref Desk -- please bring out the stretcher.

Funny discussion of the day: topic was getting copies of newspaper articles from the 1980s. Microfilm and microfiche were mentioned as possible formats. Student: "What's microfiche?".

1st evening of the new school year!
