Duke Answer Person takes on all inquiries

Steven M. Cohen writes “From The Herald Sun:

“The Answer Person, as he or she has come to be known — even affectionately as AP — is assuredly a real person, someone on the Perkins staff who also has other duties and who is broadly knowledgeable or, like any other good librarian, can at least point people in the right direction.

Beyond that, the Answer Person’s identity and even gender is a closely held secret, despite frequent guesses and occasionally propositions. These the Answer Person gamely deflects, even as he or she continues to ferret out obscure lore for genuine questions or even casual curiosity.””
