    I had a part-time job working at a library during high school and part of my undergrad years. I quickly learned that a good librarian is worth their weight in gold, platinum, and titanium – combined!

    It is their job to know what resources are out there and how to use them. In this day-and-age of excess data, keeping up with all the new resources that are appearing daily is a nightmare. It use to be enough to know how to search Chem Abstracts, the Beilstein and may Gmelin – those days are gone.

    Just like we all have that trusted colleague in physics/metallurgy/whatever that we go to to ask questions, we all need a librarian in our network.

    Donna, where were you when I was doing my PhD at Gainesville?!?

    Instead of saving the world, I save graduate students’ sanities!

    Indeed, I left my sanity in good ol’ Hogtown.

    In all seriousness, I really appreciate your sharing with us your experiences in the library sciences. The UF science community is really fortunate to have such an expert at Marston with your chemistry background.

    Go Gators!

    I second David’s comments. Marston was my second dorm.
