i had to ask a librarian if as NYU faculty i can borrow books from our library. ("obviously!" you say, but not totally: adjuncts can't and i was just an adjunct for many moons) anyway this librarian said "yup!" and now i am on my way to borrow math and linguistics and writing books to add to my bibliography 😎 📚

@aparrish Adjuncts couldn't borrow books from NYU's library? That's totally unfair!

@Td @aparrish this kind of thing is why i won't work for that kind of library again. four solar turns working with awful librarians' "sorry, not my difficulty" or "gosh, that sucks" as sum total of aid to all non-faculty
