If all the repair manuals for that model are checked out from the local libraries, don’t buy it.

Alright, who wants to hang out in January? (I’m looking at you too, jstor)

I’ll be around! I’ve been promised an exhibit pass and I’m going to stick to that only, I think, but I live in Chicago, so any meet ups would be fairly easy.

I need librarian tumblrs to follow, so send recommendations!

I’m in the process of applying to grad school (at Dominican University) for next summer — because I want a break from school and so I can save up for tuition, even though I do plan on applying for financial aid. Hopefully I can finish applying by the end of the month… 

So yeah. Send me blogs. Please. 

Hello, new tumblarian! I’m at Dominican now (although I’ll be gone before you get here). It’s a wonderful school and I really love most of the professors. Plus, our campus looks like Hogwarts. That’s usually the selling point for a lot of undergrads.


Shit just got too real, too quickly

While writing reviews for Booklist, I’ve developed some very intense feelings about audiobook cases. Please never send me another cheapass cardboard case again. Clamshell or bust.


Dear teens near my desk:

You are super cute together. Please finish this study date and go on a date date. Seriously, just ask her out, dude, she’s into you.

Meet Edinburgh Central Library’s pet Dalek.

So what is a Dalek (in fancy dress) doing in the lending library?

It all started a few years back. We got the Dalek (and his less celebrated cyberman sidekick) to promote the Edinburgh Science Festival. We liked the Dalek so much we decided to keep him, and started dressing him up in literary-themed costumes. Like the  Doctor, the Dalek has gone through one or two ‘regenerations’ – because like the rest of us he can get a bit deflated from time to time.


give me a book title!
