Unshelved comic strip for 2/4/2010

Question and Answer of the Week

Unshelved Answers Question of the Week honors go to Elfkey, who asked for help with some online catalog weirdness she discovered when entering data in the 710 field in III's Millennium system. I broke into a cold sweat and had flashbacks to my cataloging class, but I was happy to see so specific and technical a question.

Answer of the Week goes to Sumyunguy for his answer to lazylazuli's question asking for tips on how to edge out the competition for a library page job. I particularly liked the comparison between the dangers of working in a library vs. the dangers of working in a fast food restaurant, though I think some pages do have change thrown at them.

Each winner receives the signed Unshelved collection of their choice.
