At the Reference Desk

Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk

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!

Funniest Question of the Day, "Got the Sta' Martin's Handbook"? To which I replied, "Yup, and that 'St.' bit stands for Saint!"

Business picking up. We must be close to something...

Apparently my 'reference interview' with a student was so long that he had to run off to the bathroom for a moment. Waiting for his return...

Word of the day: 'exabytes'. Can't wait for the flashdrive.

Slowest day of the year? Seems like it.

Saturday and no library; kind of strange. #intersession

Beginning of Semester: 'Do you have my textbook?' End of Semester: 'Can you help me with my footnotes/citations?'
