    Was this at the Marshall? They usually film their vacation borrowing anyway.


    The smart kids go in the day before, find the books they need, hide them on a random shelf and then don't have to bear with the crazy rush :ninja:

    This is why being a linguist who doesn't do French is awesome. There are only four people in the college who'd need my books for Spanish, and only one other for Russian, so no fighting, screaming etc. I took the Spanish ones out the day after vacation borrowing started and I'm just off to have a nosey for the Russian ones - I know they will be there because I know the other Russianist won't have thought of borrowing them!

    8.30 - massive queue outside library
    8.35- they let us in. we run in. people start screaming and fighting and grabbing things off shelves
    8.50 - queue of about 20 people at each borrowing station

    General frenzy, panic, hilarity at how much people care about getting vac books.

    P.S. I've taken out 16 heavy books and I plan to read all of them. You can check up on me over Vac to see how it's going.
    How bizarre, Clare people must be such saddos. (:p:). Selwyn just said to us that if we renewed our books after a certain date, they'd be due back over the holidays. The other 3 SPSers here are a bit peeved as I took out all the Durkheim books last week :p:.

    With the SPS library, they started Vac Borrowing at 9.15, and I had the aim of getting there at that time. But as expected, I ignored my alarm and slept in. I was pretty worried that none of my books would be there when I got there, but all of the items I wanted were. Didn't expect that! :confused:

    In terms of alcohol consumption, today I have a cheese&wine party with Alan McFarlane (you going to that, West Wing?) then drinks straight after with my tutor. At my last tutor party, I got so drunk. His punch is legendary. :eek:

    I do Bio Anth :p: (i LOVE it, but it's so hard because it assumes you've done Archaeology :rolleyes: )

    I prefer to describe the Clare people as "dedicated", and that our library only has one copy of each book (all of which I had, because only two SPS people showed up at 8.30 AM)

    I'm quite the book-whore, I always get in there as soon as we get set essays :reel:

    We weren't allowed to renew. We had to give everything in the night before, and the librarians reshelved everything for this morning's cattle-stampede. It was quite hilarious though, well worth going to just for the sheer panic among all the students (primairly medics, vet meds, natscis and other less-lazy students :p: )

    Man your library sucks.
    No it doesn't. :mad: Clare people do, though. :p: I've got two shifts of shelving to do this week, to clear up yesterday's madness...

    I missed the library rush because I slept in late... I might go in there and check now.

    I've got a really important history meeting tomorrow morning and I'm so scared of oversleeping.

    My DoS meeting did not go well. Ah well, all is over now. I went back to bed after it to celebrate and have only just woken up

    I didn't get in early enough to have the free meal but I will be at the rehearsal. Unfortunately, although I'm free, I won't be at the session as it's the last day to see the Clare panto!

    :ditto: I never borrowed a book over holidays at all. Holidays are holidays! Apart from when I was working on dissertation, but it's not like my college library had resources to borrow for that anyways.
