My library school class this semester is all about the different ways to organize information and how to locate it once someone else has organized it. I've just spent the past fifteen weeks reading about different types of indexes, bibliographies, almanacs, handbooks, encyclopedias, and dictionaries. So, when I fell asleep on the couch the other night with my textbook collapsed over my chest, I had the nerdiest dream anyone has ever had. Ever.
I was in a wizard's tower, kind of like the one in the movie The Sword in the Stone (okay, we're already in serious nerd territory here), and it was incredibly messy. I couldn't find anything! So I went and found the wizard, and said something along the lines of, "What kind of organizational structure are you using here? I mean, how do you ever find the spells you need? Don't you have an index or something!?" And then I offered to catalog his spells for him.
I didn't know I was capable of compounding my innate fantasy and science-fiction-loving kind of nerdiness with LIBRARY SCIENCE, but apparently so. I only hope someone out there has had an even more nerdy dream (maybe combining computer programming and the U.S.S. Enterprise or genealogical research and Dr. Who?) that might make mine seem normal by comparison.
