0336662002 GO FUCK MYSELF

Man I think that may have been the nerdiest thing I ever typed. Damn you Library School!

Instead of burning the midnight oil last night working on the assignments due this week (as I hoped I would) I drank half a bottle of wine, fell asleep at 9:30, and didn’t wake up until 8:30am. What the hell. I need the Dialog elves to visit me in the night and make this stupid system do my bidding.

    >Only a half a bottle of wine? Shame.Am I the only one who just gave up on the Command Search and started using the Guided Search in DialogWeb and Google Scholar for citations? So much easier.

    >Laura: Only half because thankfully there were others to help me with the bottle haha. I might have to admit defeat and try your method tonight.Stef: I would say Dialog is the geeky kid who thinks he’s really smart, speaking Klingon and whatnot, but is really just a geek not the next Stephen Hawking.

    >Most of the good results on AIDS research that I got from Dialog came from the Medline dbase. If you get really frustrated, you could just wander over to the ISI’s Web of Knowledge (I would assume it’s in Pitt’s database A-Z List), choose the Medline database, and forego Dialog. Then you can do analyses on key authors and journals.Hope this helps.
