Library day in the life - 5 - Day 3

Day three started off with a Go Train that decided to arrive 20 minutes late. Three cheers for mass transit. The delay was a good thing, it gave me 20 extra minutes and I was able to finish Calvino’s, "Six Memos for the Next Millennium." Morning Morning soundtrack: BBC World Service podcast, Search Engine - Trolling 101, Funkstörung - Appendix In the trenches of morning emails. ILL requests for theses to be made open access, therefore said theses are made open access.

Research Help Desk...

Day three… Morning: Yes, email. Got into work early to cover on Research Help Desk for a colleague. I always find my shift on the help desk quite comical. I get the feeling that students and faculty don’t know how the approach the guy covered in tattoos sitting at the help desk with a laptop. Once they find out that I am actually a librarian, and not a student, or some weirdo sitting there, they seem quite surprised.
