At the Reference Desk
Brief musings while working at the Reference Desk
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?'
3 different food events happening here with the helpful Student Assistant bringing me samples. It's a hard life.
Sign that we're getting to the end of the Quarter: 'Just tell me what works -- I've got to hand in the paper in half an hour'.
Showing how to use a microfilm machine (something I do maybe one or two times a year) I kept on reaching for the mouse.
1st day back! Kinda slow. Biggest challenge of the day so far : figuring out why the faculty copier wasn't working (needed paper).
Last shift of the year! Looking forward to 2014!
2nd to last shift of the year. Helped a student print out her Amtrak ticket for her trip home to see the folks in St. Louie.
Patron comes up (alum); says she remembers me from three years ago. Love those returning customers.
