I am so totally not ever going to be a good reference librarian. I'm taking Humanities Resources this semester online, and she has posted lists of questions we are to answer, one list per week. We're supposed to read the text first, and I guess it's supposed to give us ideas how to look this stuff up. Actually, it has in some cases. It's just that most times I look at the questions and my first instinct is Google. Honestly, I think that with decent query-formation and some intelligent skepticism about source selection, that'd be the easiest way to answer lots of these. Except, we're supposed to be learning other ways to find things. More efficient ways. But really, now. If you wanted to know about Kokopelli, would your first instinct be to seek out some esoteric religious source, or would you just go to Google? Duh.
