Day 27: Organize Your Source Templates


One of the best parts of my former day job as an academic librarian was that I got to help my library’s interlibrary loan (ILL) staff as they tried to fulfill requests from my university’s faculty and graduate students for information that my library didn’t have, but that another library might have. No library can own every book, journal, magazine, or newspaper, so we made up for it by giving speedy service to figure out what other library held what we lacked.

I enjoyed this work because faculty and graduate students are not always very good in providing a complete citation. They might give an article name but no author, or an author’s name but not the year of publication, or the journal title but not the volume and issue numbers. Something is often missing.
