Today I felt like a real life librarian

– I spontaneously helped someone at the desk and adequately answered all of her questions, though I had to flag someone down to find the specific thing (the school’s faculty/staff newsletter from this week) she requested.

– I attended a presentation on Open Access publishing and actually knew what Cathy was talking about.

– In class tonight, we talked about metasearching and federated searching, and I actually knew what we were talking about.

So that’s pretty cool.

  1. What’s federated searching? I know, I still get a frisson of excitement when a nurse or doctor asks me something and I can actually answer, and I feel like a real scientist! However more often than not I have to say, “Hang on, I’ll just get the senior scientist to answer that for you.”
