And I’m learning to live with that…

When we’re little, we think, if we do what we’re supposed to, everything will just work out.
Now, I’m a 25 year old single person with a masters degree, without a job in the field I was really hoping for, who soon will have to worry about what to do about health insurance.
It’s enough to give you an upset stomach sometimes
So, I found this article
about anti-nazi leaflets in the NYPL Rare Book room. Now, the article said that the majority of these were German Communist Party publications, but I was wondering if any of them were White Rose pamphlets. I tried calling their Reference, and the instachat. Here’s what happened.
The librarian whom I talked to on the phone was pretty nice. They didn’t exactly know the answer, but they did give me some e-mail addresses and a phone number. I got a message machine, didn’t leave a message, then started an instachat conversation. The librarian recommended contacting the rare books people. So I filled that out, and it took a few moments. I went over to the chat again, and it seemed like the librarian was about to leave, so I told them. The instachat librarian then did respond before leaving, so that was good.
Reference Interview Grade mmmm, kinda subjective but 4/5 maybe
Can anyone point me to information about Christoph Probst’s wife Hertha? The only thing I can find about her really is she was born in 1915.
And Werner Scholl, Sophie Scholl’s brother. We don’t even know his middle name!
Do any historical sleuths out there know what happened to Katja and Vincent Probst?
In honor of national library week, I would like to know what your library means to you.
Librarians out there, what is your favorite thing about being a librarian?
It’s a real thing, everybody… research anxiety, that is…
For example, taking a medical anthropology class a few years ago, I had to write a class paper: a typical assignment.But I have not been a traditional student by any means, running the educational gamut of homeschooling, public school, and private school for a few years. As a high schooler an undergrad, I hadn’t really used databases much, and I didn’t really feel comfortable accessing them. Even as an avowed public library aficionado, I did not like using the ginormous university library for some reason (It was a long walk…)
One good thing that university librarians realize is that different students may have different research ability gaps.
Why do uni libraries not do more outreach?
That’s one useful thing my MLIS career has taught me, to be more sensitive of the issues information seekers go through.
If I had an undergrad experience redo, I would use the library more.
