Kit Bag Heads-Up From Eloise:
I wanted to give everyone a heads up concerning the bags we use for kits. Yesterday we had a patron return 3 kits that should have been in bags but weren't. Please make sure if a kit is small enough to fit in one of our bags and it hasn't been returned with the kit that you check workflows or the CAT. It will say at the bottom of the full record whether the kit was in a bag. It says "In locally supplied plastic bag." If bags are not returned, we can charge the patron $10.


And now, without further ado, here's your bad joke of the day:

A guy went to a psychiatrist. "Doc," he said, "I keep having these alternating recurring dreams. First I'm a teepee, then I'm a wigwam, then I'm a teepee, and then I'm a wigwam. It's driving me crazy. What's wrong with me?"

The doctor replied, "It's very simple. You're two tents."

I think it's safe to say we're all pretty sleepy around here. Anyway, the weather's decent today and will be colder tomorrow, so enjoy the day!  No official news today other than wake us all up if we fall asleep!

Today's bad joke:

What did the mother Buffalo say when her boy left for college?

Did you hear about the fire at the circus?


I hope you have a day as great as this joke wasn't!

Change Machine

The change machine in EBSL (502 Paterno) had been changed (no pun intended) and no longer dispenses the dollar coins; you now get quarters.  Due to the amount of quarters it can hold, it is set to change $1.00 and $5.00 bills only.  I put a sign on it with the new information.

Today's Bad Joke:

What do you call a psychic midget who has escaped from prison?

Heads-Up About Temperature
If you read this before you come to work - at least today, it's really hot up here.  Barblin and I put the fan out at the desk. 

And now, for today's bad joke:

How did Darth Vader know what Luke got him for Christmasa/

He felt his presents!

If you have any wonderfully bad jokes (or any jokes) to submit to the blog, just tell them to me or e-mail them.  E-mailing is probably safer, I'm terrible at remembering them, especially the punchlines.

Spring ARL Statistics
Annual Spring ARL statistics will be collected from March 25 - March 31.  All statistics will be recorded in Desk Tracker.  DON'T FORGET TO RECORD THE NUMBER OF ITEMS YOU SHELVE in the Collections Use tab.  Be extra vigilant with phone, e-mail, and office reference questions.

And now, without further interruption, todays bad joke!

Why did the cookie cry?

Because his mother was a wafer so long!

Construction/Destruction is still going on but it's easier to access the office area and the workers are doing their best to keep the dirt and dust contained.  No other big news for today. 

And for today's bad joke, it's a bar joke! 

A neutron walks into a bar and asks "how much for a beer?" The bartender says, "for you? no charge."

Happy First Day of Spring!  No new news to report today.  They're working on the ceiling in front of the office area and the door is often kept closed.  If you can't get in touch with one of us, try the desk.  I'll probably be out here most of the day.

And now, courtesy of someone who SHOULD be a regular blog reader but confesses that (s)he isn't always quite as attentive as one should be (although (s)he seems to be following the jokes), today's bad joke:

What is the best vegetable to accompany a delicious filet of roadkill?


Infohut Inquirer - come for the info, stay for the jokes.  Or vice versa.

Don't forget today's training session from 4:30 - 6:00.  Bring questions!

Today's Bad Joke: (I seem to be on a weird pirate theme.  Bear with me...)

How much does a pirate pay for corn?

A buccaneer!

I'm baaaack...

Which leads to the Bad Joke of the Day! 

Why did the pirate go to the Caribbean?

He wanted some arr and arr.

You probably already got this but if you didn't:
Good Morning,
Many of you have asked for a comprehensive list of databases, publishers and serials titles that are indexed in LionSearch. Serials Solutions now has that information available!  

Please see Summon's full content and coverage page here. 

Please contact us if you have any questions!
