I just want to add, "Amen, brother!!" I have only slightly more years in
the profession than Mark, and don't deal with the public anymore. However
this topic has been beaten to death for years in Library Schools, at
library conferences and meetings for more years than I care to remember.
YiS -- and I'm adding my work signature file to this one!

Frankly, I could not paint my paintings, design my illustrations,
or write my books without travelling that road of human knowledge,
experience and creativity�a road paved with books found in libraries.
