dissertation lesson number 459.

when the english library specialist tells you when you FIRST START GRADUATE SCHOOL AT THIS INSTITUTION that, when you request articles or books from interlibrary loan because we are a state school and don’t have subscriptions to things like european romantic review even though it’s the foundational journal in my field and associated with the foundational organization in my field, you should really put the ISBN and accession number on there to speed processing?

LISTEN TO HIM.

i could do the happy dance all day for the turnaround time since i started doing it.  usually? about 12 hours.

TWELVE HOURS.

do you understand how amazing that is?

i bow down at the feet of john van hook and his nuggets of library knowledge.

now if someone would just RETURN THE BOOK I NEED I ALREADY RECALLED IT DANGIT AND I NEED IT RIGHT NOW.

or: don’t procrastinate your research.

the end.
