librarian moment of zen

Or at least, when it all came together today.

As I was leaving, a librarian I have great respect for, a cataloger, and very smart lady, came across something I printed for a patron... The question was an interesting one -- how many states allow just one license plate. I found the answer through a link in the blessed Wikipedia. (Of course I tried print sources first). The cataloger took a look at the map (which would have gotten an A in my info design class) and said, "Where did you get that?"

I introduced her to the joy of Wiki.

Tonight is a good night for a soak in the tub. How I wish I had cleaned it this weekend.
