Reference Librarians: a dedicated lot!

A little insight into the world of a reference librarian:

"Reference librarians are a dedicated group! Their aim is to find the information that the customer needs if at all possible. But would you be willing to demonstrate the hokey-pokey to someone standing in front of your reference desk? A librarian in Minneapolis did that recently. Check out this blog entry here! However, should you need to show someone how to do the hokey-pokey, do not despair. There are several YouTube videos demonstrating this classic! And, if you do end up demonstrating the hokey-pokey at the reference desk, you might end up on YouTube, given the ready availability of video recording devices nowadays."
