I love this post at Pegasus Librarian.
"...While shepherding them through exercises to give them practice with print and online resources, one of my coworkers overheard a student saying, 'I hate books. They're so dirty.'"
Ha! Meatspace, huh. A disgusted shudder as the student contemplates meeting a friend in "real-time", too.
It goes on to wonder at how dirty the dusty books really are versus the microbe-rich environment of computer keyboards. Anybody happen to know what the rate of infection for either or both is, by the way? Curious.
Rock on with your day now.
