@jennythelib - I wish they did the "roving reference" thing at my library. Our reference librarians do always look really busy. I guess I shouldn't be afraid to interrupt them - helping patrons is their *main* job, right?
Not everyone realizes how much more value you can get from asking a librarian instead of just going out on your own with Google. As just one tiny example, my library has access to Consumer Reports, which you can't get for free online, not to mention a lot of other paid resources. (Sometimes, with the Internet, you get what you pay for!)
I was on the job market last year and my library was a big help with my resume and submitting online job applications, too. I guess with the economy the way it is, that's how they're spending a lot of they're time these days!
