How Not to Annoy The Librarian

1. Do not make your reference request at the last minute. Yes, there are emergencies, but is your each and every request really an emergency, each and every time? Try to focus and plan ahead when you can.

2. In light of #1, must your every email be marked as urgent/high priority? We prefer our emails to beep at us only when the contents are truly urgent.

3. We are here to help you, but we are not your servants. If you would like to use a specific book right away, please consider coming to the library and getting the book yourself, instead of asking one of us to bring it to you. It's possible that we might have existing research projects for other people - like senior partners.

4. Please do not chew gum while talking on the phone with us. It's rude and it's gross, even more so when the sound is amplified DIRECTLY INTO ONE'S EAR.
