I’m back after being away for a few months. It was an excused absence, and I now have a little baby to look after in addition to answering reference questions.

So far, I haven’t gotten very many questions. But, here are some of them:

*I can’t access this article in a journal, and it looks like I should be able to get it. (Darn those EBSCO embargos. So hard to explain to patrons: “Well, I can get you some articles from that journal, just not the one you’re actually looking for.”)

*I was the subject of a medical article on a rare disease. I think the article was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1966. Do you have that here?

*Where is my textbook for this class?

*Where is this journal?

*Why can’t I find any of the books I’m looking for in the QE section over here (points to reference area)?
