Notes from the Information Desk

Notes from the Information Desk is a collection of online documents on a variety of topics. Some are based on the Clipart of mouse behind a stack of booksquestions I’ve been asked frequently, some on professional development workshops I’ve attended which are given by subject experts, some on current events, etc.

By nature, reference librarians are a curious bunch. As Robert Louis Stevenson wrote in his Child’s Garden of Verses, “The world is so full of a number of things, I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings”.
