I'm a positive librarian

There are several adantages of working for the library, and one of the most exciting ones happened a couple of days ago when I searched the internal system as part of me learning what there is to learn about this place.

For shere amusement I searched for Claudio Monteverdi, and lo and behold! I found a book that I've been drooling over for a few years now; by Denis Stevens. I promptly ordered it over the intranet, and went down to collect it!

It is a most wonderful book with translations of Monteverdis 126 letters that has survived, with tons of annotations, contextual commentary and a few goodie pictures to flesh it out. I was excited as a small child getting candy, and I finished a quick reading of it in two settings. No doubt I'll be using this more when the fabled ClaudioMonteverdi.org site ever gets up and running.

If for nothing else, it gives me a serious kick up the bumside to start my Monteverdi site seriously.

Who would have thought there would be perks as a librarian. Apart from the boring haircut and spectacles ;-)

Hey, they're nice spectacles. And I don't have hair. :)
