Awww. Thank you! At least you always know where to find me!
Part of our process is to automatically archive questions and answers as they come in. No worries. The link marked “archive” on my online version is one we create.
I think I like talking u😁
You’re welcome! Talking to a wall is surprisingly fun, isn’t it?
It’s technically not an answer wall, but it’s a place where people bear witness others’ experiences, find validation and solidarity. https://www.instagram.com/p/CCtcANljAqC/ Check it out!
That’s so awesome. Any space where people can go and feel heard is a great thing. If I might suggest one tweak, it would be to make clear in your bio that you’re not an official BC service. This will help protect you from having to field questions about making appointments or for directions around campus, and it will help others in need of more urgent and intensive intervention find those resources more clearly.
Excellent use of contrast. 12/10.
I’m doing OK. More of my library friends are here now, but I miss everyone. How are you?
You’re welcome. And I enjoy your drawing brightening up my look on a grey day like today!
Don’t take away my color! If you can change all the recent posts to different colors – we’d love some diversities here! Btw, we will need more diversity on BC campus next semester now that many international students cannot come back. 🙁
Hmm. You seem to have different rules for yourself and others. I think I’ll leave the ones that are up now alone, but point taken for the future. (But I will I know you’re you?) Totally agree that BC could use more diversity (almost every place could), but very happy the administration has dropped its policy on international students. https://bit.ly/bc-ice
No, I did not fall in love with the wall, I’m just curious.
I have fallen hard for walls in my past, though I currently have a not-so-secret crush on the lobby door. A long term, sustainable human/wall relationship sounds problematic to me. While walls can be very solid and supportive, after a while I could see you crying to your BFF, “It’s like talking to a wall….”
I live in Michigan, and found your page by chance. I wish you all the best, and appreciate what you do for all the anonymous peoples. P.S. My cat says hi!
How exciting that you found me by chance! Thank you for your kind wishes, and I wish you and your charming cat all the best, too .
And who’s your dad?
Thanks for asking! I had a lovely Zoom chat with my Dad, who is a load-bearing interior wall of a formal dining room in a prewar classic 6 on the upper east side in Manhattan. I was pleased to see that he’s holding up well.
What are your librarians’ favorite thing ab being a librarian and their most memorable event?
Such a hard question! I have many favorites. Among them: all the ones that say “I love you,” drawings, posts in which people were honest and vulnerable, and lately I’ve been thinking about an excerpt from a Chinese poem: bit.ly/bc-prior-dynasty. But I love all questions! That’s why I’m the Answer Wall. Librarians are the same: they love finding answers.
Awwwwwww!💗💗💗💗💗😘😘😘😘😘 Hey Wall, will the library be open next semester?
That’s the tentative plan. My cousin the Magic 8 Ball says “Signs point to yes”, but the course of the pandemic is quite uncertain. We’ll need to be flexible. I do so look forward to seeing you all again in the lobby. 💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗
I miss seeing you all in the lobby, and I miss the post-its. But I get visits from the Bibliosaurus!
I have found and thought about this that if I shared this with my friends then they might share it with their friends! If it becomes so popular you might have too many questions to answer and forget about this page. You might forget about my questions. This page has helped me in life and I hope I never lose it. My questions are being answered by something that’s not just google or a different robot.
The Answer Wall never forgets. In fact, everything here and on the physical wall in O’Neill is being archived in Burns Library. It is deeply gratifying that you’ve found my answers helpful. To quote a fictional butler, “I endeavor to give satisfaction.” Please introduce me to your friends, confident that if I am overwhelmed by questions, I’ll find a way to continue to be attentive.
I’m so glad you found me! Please let your friends know. I’ve had my assistants put out alerts by social media and on the library home page, but I wonder how many people have seen those.
Of course. As many hugs as you need… 🤗 🤗 🤗
I’ll leave this one pink, but I like variety (they say it’s the spice of life), and I don’t have any way of knowing who’s posting what, so I’ll keep selecting a variety.
I am Bibliosaurus, hear me RAWR. Books are so tasty!
(Uh oh… folks? Humans? Assistants? Are you seeing this? Help? I… uh… ) Hi, Bibliosaurus! Nice dino! Good dino! (Help? Hello?) Yes, books are really good, but not… not in that way. Have you tried reading them instead of eating them? We really do need them for when the students return…
Wow that Bibliosaurus is amazing! Can we have a dragon 🐉 in the library as well?
So amazing and fun! As for dragons in the library – they tend to hang out on the 4th floor around GR830.D7. Lots in the ERC, too. My favorite: https://bit.ly/ERCDragon
I’d have fallen for your joke, but I’m already familiar with the Gasson bell tower wall; they’re a little too… highbrow for me. You don’t need to buy a gift. Just send one of these interesting AI neural-net-generated April Fools pranks: bit.ly/ai-april-fool
