Holiday items

Monday is a holiday here in the UK, so 2 information-related lighter items. Firstly, Australian librarian Andrew Finegan: "His show, Librarian Idol, was a surprise hit at the Adelaide Fringe, and was inspired by the deflating realisation that being a librarian ain't all it was cracked up to be at uni, and an equally deflating audition for Australian Idol" reports newspaper The Age, in an article previewing his show that ran in Melbourne this weekend (featuring songs such as "Librarian girl.") Scott-Norman, F. (2008) "Cool librarian, where do you look?" The Age, May 2nd. Being a cool Web 2.0 kind of guy, he has a Myspace page at and I see his next performance is in Darwin on 9th May.

Secondly, a student here at Sheffield has done his "take on the song I see girls by studio B, about girls at the Information Commons at University of Sheffield." Our Information Commons (IC - I see) features prominently as the venue of the song.
