It’s the Holidays?

The only reason you call December a holiday is because of Christmas and then, the fast approaching New Year. Well, all right,  the students have gone off on their holidays. That certainly gives the reason to declare it a holiday. But a holiday, really, a real one? Bah! humbug, I say! For the past weeks, TNL […]

The Zoe Project

TNL met with a tutor friend along the corridors of the Business School recently and what she said gave TNL quite a nice lift of the spirits. It seems this semester’s MNO1001 (Management and Organization) students are doing a project that totally grabbed TNL’s attention. It is called the Zoe Project . Our young ones’ mission is […]

Statistics and Lots of It

TNL was minding her own busy business, preparing to give an overview of statistical databases to her PhDs, when she remembered a funny story she could not resist not telling. One day, while again minding her own business (TNL minds that quite a bit), a graduate student from faraway Europe asked for statistics. She wanted to prove […]

A Tortoise at Central Library

Or rather a “tor-toy-ise” as my bunch of Sec 4s said trying in vain to distract me from giving them a comprehension exercise. These kids!  But I digress….Yes, folks, a tortoise! And what a tortoise it is too! All through vacation, as we got off the bus in front of Central Library, we saw it […]

So Long and Thanks, Maggie!

TNL bids farewell to Maggie, our LINUS Blog editor who is off on a new adventure. What can TNL say except – Take me with you!! As far as TNL is concerned any librarian that sits up and say, “Aha! I’m going for it!” deserves a pat on the back, a righteous, loud “Good on […]

One Stop Service Desk We kind of figured that our students and library users would prefer to have all our information services in one place – hence, both Information Desk and Loans Desk are now located at one place – near the entrance of the library. Then, some mysterious flu virus from across the Pacific […]

TNL is Not Dead

It feels like it, though. Or at least, in a hole 6-feet under.   It has been a frantic 1 month of deadlines to get some awesome stuff. Hopefully, all this frantic-ness will lead to some Eureka moment. Suffice to say, all that work has not quite come to a full-stop. More of a pause. […]

Librarians

It seems it is time to come out of hiding… Well, TNL wasn’t really hiding per se… And no, you are not going to be reading a bunch of excuses and self-analysis babble… let’s just skip all that and come right to the point… It seems there has been some talk about us librarians and […]

What was the question again? (Part 2)

Last weekend, there was an article that says researchers at ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories “created a technology that could eventually display on a computer screen what people have on their minds”.  <http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20081211/sc_afp/sciencejapanbrainoffbeat_081211052641> So if our tall, blond, blue-eyed friend had walked through some fancy machine that scans what he had in his head, TNL would […]

What Was the Question Again?

A tall, blond, blue-eyed student came up to me at the Information Desk a few weeks ago and asked, “Do you use a stapler?” Uhh, yes… I use a stapler… But the librarian in me kicked in and after a little probing, I discovered that the young man wanted to use our stapler. There was […]
