always a librarian I suppose. I've just been playing around with the new catalog system of our local library consortium, which consists of ten public libraries and two academic libraries all in different towns. One card and I can borrow from any of them and have the books delivered to my local branch library for me to pick up. That part is not new, but oh the new catalog. What a joy to use and being the geek I am, I can also see the cataloging record for each entry. I've already placed two requests and the system has only been up less than 24 hours. It's the small things in life that keep me happy and bring me joy.
