A Rant and Realization

Just to let everyone know, I hate the Reeves Library website. EBSCO is down and I can't look up illustrious peer-reviewed articles for my Seminar in Thinking and Writing class.

To the library I will go...To the library I will go hi-ho-the-derry-o.

What is she complaining about? you ask. The librarians scare me now. After a certain person warned me of the librarians' dragonishness, I am loathe to enter the building. Maybe I will just look it all up at work.

Anyway, does anyone know of another place, besides the Google mess, where I could find an EBSCO-like inlet to peer-reviewed writings.

Just when you begin implementing the tools that you have been harped on to use, they go down. Ironic isn't it?

Now it is up, and you know how I found out? I asked the librarian, and the site came up after it had been down all day long. I think someone is trying to teach me to be humble.

I had some bad experiences with the Seton Hill library. I gave my friend books to return to the library before break, well he forgot them in his desk, and they got stolen. The Library wants us to pay for them, if anyone should it's campus security for letting people get at them. Though I don't want to offend campus security, so I'll stop there.

Sounds like a nasty situation. I know that the "person" I mentioned in this entry wouldn't want to use the Inter-Library Loan again.

Supposedly, the librarian wouldn't let her get her due dates extended from other libraries (she called them all up and told them that she didn't want her to have them out).

I hope everything works out, Puff.
