I have stumbled through these few days rather....didn't really recover from the cold before coming back into work...but it has been kind of fun doing end-of-the-year statistics....even though it is easy to end up cross-eyed with spreadsheets and data and draft notes and reports.
It's also quite easy to get in a logic tangle while defining parameters for queries (We need a total for items which were added to stock between 1 April 2003 and 31 March 2004 which ARE books but ARE NOT children's books, have been borrowed at least five times AND are currently available....)
Ah, the dogsbody work backstage at the library, but it's worth it:
Even the most misfitting child
Who's chanced upon the library's worth
Sits with the genius of the Earth
And turns the key to the whole world. Ted Hughes July 1997
