Submitter: I can’t believe this book survived two circ system upgrades, including re-barcoding, and an inventory! The copyright date is 1938. Seriously. Our book is a 37th printing, and according to the preface, the original had been in use for 18 years. But 1938 is the only date listed anywhere. I like the photos and the hand-written a, b, c, d on them.
Holly: Mary and I have both had this happen to us! We find things on the shelves that seem to pop out of nowhere. We do regular inventory, we weed, we even RFID-tagged a whole collection, but then something like this shows up on the shelves. Old book gnomes?
