Fun Monday (the belated holiday version)

While many of us know that the arrival of Peeps in supermarkets signals spring, and we’re all aware that they’re a delicious sugary treat, most of us remain ignorant abut their research and study habits.  Here, the Staley Library at Millikin University delves deep into the library and research customs of Peeps, revealing quite a few surprises.

Superman’s Day in Court

What are the rare books librarians at Yale University up to these days?  Showing us how much fun archives really can be. 

The library has a show on called “Superheroes in Court!  Lawyers, Law, and Comic Books.”  The exhibit shows  images of courtroom drama and congressional inquiries from comic books.

The New York Times wrote about the exhibit here.

Exhibit information: “Superheroes in Court! Lawyers, Law and Comic Books”, curated by Mark S. Zaid, Esq., and on display Sept. 4-Dec, 16, 2010 in the Rare Book Exhibition Gallery, Level L2, Lillian Goldman Law Library, Yale Law School

Zombies Are Bad for Circulation

I have a bat in my apartment whose purpose is two fold:
1) To fend off attack
2) To fend off attack from zombies

Luckily, the University of Florida Library is way ahead of me.

The Zombie Survival Guide outlines how to survive if (when) the zombies invade the campus. Also features a handy way to interest students in off-campus access of resources.

In preparation for Zombie infections which may affect UF campus services, this guide shows how library services can be accessed remotely. It also provides pathways for researching survival skills.

Fun Friday: Dewey Decimal Rap


So I’m an LOC girl, and I know that law libraries don’t actually use the Dewey Decimal system to organize books. Which makes sense seeing as how they’d all fall under the same number set.

…but this is still hysterical. And really catchy.
