Rexing for IndexingMay 6, 2009 at 11:21 pm | Posted in Book Blather | 4 Comments
Our library card catalog is down. They had some kind of major equipment failure.
This is driving me up a tree. I went online last night to reserve a book, and assumed I was just having network problems when it didn’t work. It’s still out, and they have no idea when it will be up and running again.
How am I supposed to reserve books? What if I hear about a new book and I want to see if they have it in stock? Waaaah!
Yes, I am old enough to remember old wooden drawers full of typed index cards. Yes, I know having electronic records is an improvement over that. But you see, I’m an addict now and I want accessibility. Schnif.
