  • -Hey, Riptide. How's it going?
  • What's wrong?
  • Don't tell me you haven't started
  • on that research paper yet.
  • Research can be overwhelming.
  • Do you need some help getting started?
  • You've come to the right place.
  • This is the information and reference desk,
  • and that's what we're here for.
  • Why don't you tell me what your paper topic is,
  • and I'll help you use the library's catalog
  • to find some books on your topic
  • and how to use the databases on our website.

  • -Hey, Riptide, don't tell me you're short on cash.
  • You should do what I did. I got a job in the library.
  • That way I make some extra money
  • and I also learn more about the library.
  • That helps me when I'm doing research
  • because I know how the library works.
  • Just go to the administrative office
  • on the second floor to apply.

  • -Riptide, what are you doin'?
  • I'm sorry, Riptide, but you can't eat in the library,
  • and your drink has to be in a spill-proof container,
  • like this mug.
  • Food and drink can spill and attract bugs.
  • Bugs can damage library books.
  • Library books are fragile
  • and can be hard to replace when damaged.
  • Why don't you go to the snack lounge downstairs?
  • You can eat there any time.

  • A-plus. Good work.
