One New Thing: How much you need to know about something before you can find it.

I had a student ask for a particular kind of document that I had never heard of, something that was pretty standard in the field she was studying in except she wasn’t sure where they came from and I didn’t know enough about the field to work it out. Of course the best thing to do is to refer to someone who does know…but after searching in what I thought were the right places, I really wish I’d been able to find them!

Friday link: I noticed yesterday that the original RefGrunt is no longer going to be updated. Sad, but it’s been fun!
