Unshelved comic strip for 5/12/2010

Printing Last Week's Strip

Friday's strip, our contribution to the upcoming Reading With Pictures anthology, really struck a chord with a lot of people. Many of you have asked if you can get a copy to print out for your library, bookstore, or comic shop. So, with the understanding that you'll still buy yourself a copy of said anthology, we are making this printable version available to you to post in your workplace. If you'd like to use it for any other purpose please ask first.

Question and Answer of the Week

Unshelved Answers logo

Question of the Week goes to collegecate for asking, "If you had 15 minutes with a college student, what would you tell them about library research?" There are some great Answers from other users. I'd tell them to remember their public library, when they need help -- I never got as much help at my university library as I did there.

Answer of the Week goes to anankaf for her hilarious answer to Caroline Langsford's question about the strangest lost item she'd ever found. It's funnier than my true life answer, a fifth of vodka, but probably not as much fun.

Both winners get the signed Unshelved collection of their choice.
