Listen to a conversation between a student and librarian.
Hi, can I help you?
I hope so.
I need to find an article in a journal
course called Comtemporary Research in linquest ticks Linguistics, and I've looked all of over the stacks for it, but I can't find it anywhere. Could you look to see if it's been checked out.
Okay, that may not be the problem.
But I just check the computer catalog over there, and it's
lists listed there, and it's senstive it says it's available unavailable.
When you looked up the book
locate locator number, did you see the letters "LAN".
Oh, okay, yeah, I saw that, but I didn't know what it
Well, that means it's in the language department library. We don't have it here.
Yes, the university actually has 9 libraries, so you always have to check the library code when you are looking for a book.
Okay, but it is available, but not in this library.
Right, but we do have a number of other
language extranals linguistics journals here.
No, I need this one
specificly specifically. This arcticles article is mentioned in a bunch ies of other articles I've already read, and I wanted to have a look at the original, this one, you know, in case this there's more stuff I can could use to in my paper.
Okay, well, you know, all the
universities library university's libraries share their resources, so if you like, I could call the language department librarian library and ask them to send it over. And we'd have it for you here, oh, a day after tomorrow around noon.
I appreciate it, but I can't wait that long. I need this artice for
the a paper I'm writing that's due the day after tomorrow. Ummm, could you tell me where the language department library is?
Sure, it's on the other campus in the basement of
hall Pearson Hall, all across from the listening lab. But I doubt you you'll would be able to make it over there in time today.
Now, especially since I don't have a car, but my sister does, and I'm pretty sure she'd
led let me bar borrow it with.
If I go over there
for first things tomorrow morning, would I be able to check it out right away.
I don't see why not. Just make sure, you have your student ID with you.
Okay, that what I'll do then. Thank you very much.
