We don't judge you here

...okay maybe just a little.

The only time I ever see library patrons get sheepish here is when they come to pick up material that is pop-culture in nature, be it the Complete Far Side folio edition, season two of Felicity, or the latest graphic novel to grace our ever-burgeoning collection. It's interesting. We have an entire library's worth of Nazi ephemera and other equally repugnant (if invaluable from a research perspective) items which people check out and use without so much as batting an eye, but the same patrons will invariably make whatever lame apologies they can if the item waiting on the Hold Shelf for them is a comic book or television series on DVD.

It's okay. This is the 21st century. Even at Harvard, we're allowed to watch Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Really!
