We must all have libraries on the brain today (well, Jennifer must always have libraries on the brain ;) ).
I found a list of books that were good targets for different speech sounds, so I was going through my students' sounds and looking to see if my library had any of the books. I was SO annoyed - for some reason, if I typed in the author's name first name + last name (Mercer Mayer) it would tell me that author wasn't in their collection. I didn't realize until NONE of the authors showed up in the database and it rejected "Dr. Seuss" and suggested I search for "Seuss, Dr." that you had to search for "Mayer, Mercer" and then it would find it. I get that's how the database is programmed - but jeesh. Google could figure it out if I typed Mercer Mayer. Get with the program, library. And then all the books were checked out or at different libraries (we have like 30 in my city and most of them I have no idea where they are). I did reserve a couple at the library I use, but didn't want to bother to do interlibrary loan for the rest because I really wasn't looking for any of the books in particular, just ONE of them. And I didn't want to wait weeks for them to come in because I was trying to use them for lessons later this week. Not sure this library thing is going to work out well for me.
