Where's the Library?

Libraries are not just a place or a thing. Libraries are evolving!

Reference

Posted by Librarian/Information Professional on September 23, 2012

Interestingly enough the reference questions have been about finding the reserves, checking out books, locating a book on the shelves. Yes, it is a new school year, and this group has not yet learned our system. They will soon and be “old hands” at it.

Since they closed a computer lab, we are busier than ever. Our computers are constantly busy in the evenings, with people waiting to use them. Yes, we have a good crop of “flash drives” left behind.

This afternoon, I have helped someone find a book in the “stacks.” No student knows that term! Also, helped several students find some books; directed some to the circulation desk; explained where reserves are; showed how to use the copy machine; filled up the printers with paper; and the evening is still very young.  Believe it or not, I enjoy reference most of the time. It is one of the more fulfilling jobs in the library, in my estimation. Getting instant feedback for your efforts is always gratifying.

So, if you need some background information on Olympic Games or Beowulf, or need an article about II Chronicles, etc., stop by the reference desk or contact us online!
