Aliens From Space
The Real Story of Unidentified Flying Objects

Folks, I have been working on weeding in the zeros-100’s and I am still having trouble coming up with some solid criteria for those topics like UFOs, Bigfoot, crop circles and all sorts of other stuff that floats in the lower range of Dewey land.  Currency?  Scientific authority?  My expertise is limited to episodes of  the X files, Unsolved Mysteries, and lately Fringe.  Anyone have any nice ideas I can communicate in a collection objective? Everyone in public library land knows this stuff is usually good to go until it falls apart.  I keep thinking we can do better.

I Want To Believe!

PS Here is the back cover.  BTW, there is no mention of Roswell at all in this book.  Hmmm….

Romance in the Stacks

Jinny Williams Library Assistant

 

Jinny Williams Library Assistant
Temkin and Hovell
1967

Can our young modern girl find love in her local library?  Our girl Jinny moves through the stacks looking for love in all the wrong places. Maybe it will be the cute guy downloading inappropriate material from the Internet. Maybe it will be that ultra sexy new librarian who keeps “checking her out.” Maybe she will get a couple of cats and head off to library school and get her MLS.  Grab this page turner and find out!

Opportunities in Library and Information Science
Heim and Sullivan
1986

This is the career I have wanted forever:  looking at a vase (must be off desk time), using a cool bar scanner  or maybe even use microfiche! I bet the kids are dying to get into library service after this exciting book.
