Uhhhh


What would you call a library? Like the actual name eg Bodleian Library. I have no idea what to call my library in my whacky black comedy

We have no cool library names. I work at the Great River Regional Library, which is lame.

Heh, Bibliophile Library...*grin*




Look! A shiny thing! *is distracted*

It works for now...on the plus side, it's totally ficiotnal but I read somewhere that when you create those types of things people might go looking for them...hell, I don't know what my library looks like outside even!

On the plus side, if you give it a name with several words in it, it will automatically increase your word count by several every time you have to write it.

Like I had NCIS in my JulNo and NaNos of last year. Instead of writing NCIS anywhere, I always wrote it out as Naval Criminal Investigative Service. :D :D :D




I have just met you and I love you.

LOL. I have internal affairs [which started off as ESD which is Victoria and Ethical Standards Division to PIC which is NSW and Police Integrity Commission and ended up as internal affairs after I started watching Water Rats re-runs on PAY TV]. It started to get confusing but I ended up using internal affairs, seeing as even the American cop shows use it so...hehe you could also write JAG out as Judge Advocate General XD

So, never use acronyms? That's another nice trick, along with the * * * * * chapter breaks.

Excellent.

Gosford Library, which has Wyong, Erina and Kincumber, and Gosford Branches

Auchmuty for the Newcastle Campus library

Information Resource Centre for the Ourimbah Campus Library...come on! I wish our libraries would have some creativity like the Oxford ones!

Sydney Uni has Fischer Library...whoop de whoop, its probably named after somebody
