Aaron and I moved some things in the reference around yesterday. We no longer have any indexes on this index table. This is prime real estate, and the indexes are almost never used any more. We also do not have so many business tools as we used to have. We are still thinking what to do with this table. Our phone book collection and our guides to colleges are on the other side. We could put consumer resources onto the table (like at Downers Grove). What are other libraries doing with index tables?
I am a reference librarian at the Thomas Ford Memorial Library who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. I have worked in public libraries in Texas, Missouri, and Illinois. I am interested in promoting reference services and the reading of good books.
