It's been a while since I've done any real cataloguing, so who knows how out of the loop I am. I'm just catching up on forthcoming changes with the shift from AACR2 to RDA (the world of librarianship is nearly as exciting as that of covert ops - just look at our acronyms!)
I have noticed a subject heading that makes me chuckle:
650 00 $a Immortalism $v Fiction
Immortalism? Huh. Is that something you can study? A code to live by like relativism and conservatism? "Hi, I'm Tess, and I'm an immortalist."
Just watch out for pesky typos that turn you into an immoralist.
And, from the humour files:
Early yesterday afternoon, a woman entered the library, and before we could see her, we heard her as her voice boomed out to fill the building as she said, "This is a VERY small library. There are some libraries that are 20 or 30 times bigger than this!"
Turns out she was touring around a young girl from Nunavut and wanted to reassure her that Ontario does have large libraries.
It's not the number of books you have that counts, but how you use them, right?
