One New Thing: Librarian perceptions.

Perhaps it is because the students from my university are heading off on holidays and the number of questions to the desk is lessening daily, but I’ve noticed an unusually high proportion of questioners asking something they don’t think I’ll really know…then being surprised when I suggest somewhere they could look to find out what they want. Erm, isn’t that what I’m supposed to do? Or is there an idea out there that librarians just generally *know* stuff and if they don’t, then that must be the end of it? :)
