Break Silence for Emergency Use

Matt came up with the above great line that should be displayed on the desk of all Librarians that dont take themselves too seriously!

Not that my library is particularly quiet anyway! Sometimes it us libary staff that are guilty of the most noise, particularly when we are having a gossip-fest!

It is certainly the quietest time of the year for the library though (aside from Christmas) as most people seem to vanish during August. Having said that, the first week in August is always a bit manic in the Academy due to the intake of the new baby doctors!

They are fresh out of university and haven't a clue as to what they are doing!! It is well known amongst healthcare staff that August is never ever a good time to be ill! So, I am sure that we will be seeing these new doctors in the library as they register to be library members and desperately ask us where Kumar and Clark is! (for those that don't know, this is one of the standard medical textbooks).

Otherwise, the summer is a good time for the library to do a few odd projects such as tidy one's desk! I am still rather proud of that one!! Will be taking a photo on Monday in order to prove it to you and to give myself a benchmark to maintain!! ;-)

Baby doctors?

I think you mean paediatricians.

You're welcome.
