Talk cataloging to me, baby

June 8, 2006

One should watch one's language when using cataloging jargon. Case in point, the following words, uttered with seeming innocence by our cataloging professor this very evening:

"We need to trace her and find her authorized access points."

–Prof. P, on searching for Katharine Hepburn's authority record for the film Desk Set.

(If no one else thinks this is funny, I have clearly been library school too long. Already.)
