I am very pleased! I have finally gotten a card to a neighboring city’s library which is much nicer and have a competent library staff. When I went to my city’s library and asked the circulation librarian about the Lancet Neurology article he had to get up to see if it was one of the 20 or so periodicals that they get – pretty pitiful. He was then asked to ILL the article and it has never arrived making me think he never made the request. Especially damning since he seemed pretty put out to do it – and since we were the first ones ever, for him, to request a periodical article. It’s librarians like this that give them the reputation for being incompetent and only good for telling people to be quiet – not as a resource to help you do your searching, etc. On a plus not I should be able to get a TexShare card and go down to the UT SW Medical School Library to get a couple of books. I am especially interested in getting a book on immunology since I know nothing beyond the small basics of how the immune system works. As is no surprise SWMed Library has quite a few excellent books on that topic. I also plan on getting a book on neurophysiology but the neighboring city’s library has a book on that subject with a specialty on the brain. First things first the book “Curing MS : how science is solving the mysteries of multiple sclerosis” is due back this Saturday and I have a hold placed on it so with any luck that will be my reading material for next week.
