Ask them for a book to save you a look

* Thanks to my friend Aaron for suggesting this simple miracle. As a doctoral history student, he often utilizes a librarian's research expertise.
* This simple miracle is also inspired by my sister Maria who is a librarian for a small Catholic college in Tennessee. She has given our whole family a pride for librarians.
* At work, we also have great librarians. I often identify books or journal articles that I would like from other libraries and they swiftly obtain it for me.
* When I was growing up, my family lived within walking distance of the library and we visited it often. In fact, when the librarian came to my fourth-grade class, she pointed to me and said, "Oh yes, I know Phil, his family comes three times a week." How embarrassed I was!
