Is Your Library Zombie-Ready?

The librarians at the University of Florida have prepared a <a href="http://libguides.uflib.ufl.edu/zombie">zombie survival guide</a> to teach students, faculty, and staff members how to access library resources remotely (say, from a zombie-defense bunker). You might think that this is a clever gimmick to make bibliographic instruction enjoyable, but Gators know that <a href="http://weblogs.sun-sentinel.com/news/specials/weirdflorida/blog/2009/12/warning_zombies_someone_at_uf.html">this isn't the first time the campus has been under zombie alert</a>, and an employee has even created a disaster preparedness guide (<a href="http://ufdcweb1.uflib.ufl.edu/UFDC7/IR/00/02/00/01/00001/zbsd_exercise.pdf">pdf</a>) including an Infected Co-Worker Dispatch Form to explain why you've killed a zombie who was once an employee. Braaaaaains! Er, I mean... Go Gators!
