I’m guessing not: the way she appears strikes me that she is from another library system, maybe an academic, legal, or special library… This is the perfect strap to once again showcase the ongoing battle between print as championed by Martin and e- as advocated by Grant.

It was supposed to be, “This is the perfect _strip_ to…showcase….” not _strap!_ I gotta look over my posts more carefully before I hit the “send” button.

Of course I would have a book handy to keep me occupied! Reply Neal says: December 31, 2019 at 7:51 am One of the duties of librarians is to know the collection and be able to recommend books to patrons. Not every good book is discovered in a list from the New York Times. Reply Curtis says: January 3, 2020 at 3:17 pm Meanwhile, I’m standing behind a loan desk reading this comic. Graphic novels still count, right? Reply Elliot says: January 6, 2020 at 12:31 pm Print or e- ? Ask Martin if it’s the former, or Grant if it’s the latter, but don’t ask the angry librarian unless you’re “working,” i.e. reading it on a screen.
