At the Reference Desk

Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk

Another day, another research consultation.

1st research consultation for 2015.

Loads of IMs today -- you'd think people didn't want to go out for some reason.

Last evening of the year. Back in 2015!

Um, happy Finals Week...

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!"
