to fabfouremily: thanks. Your profile says you like libraries. Cool. I'm a librarian. I got my MLIS from the University of Southern Mississippi. I have been a university librarian in Oklahoma for 17 years now.

I'm starting to learn my way around the forum. It is so big!

^ I do really love libraries, yes. Well, to be more specific, I love the smell of libraries. That dusty smell, can't beat it :) At times when I'm in a defeated mood and I think I'll never get the grades to eventually work in the field of clinical Psychology, I dream of opening a little library that has a small coffee shop on the side that sells gorgeous cakes, too. Maybe that's what I'll end up doing one day.

Glad to hear you're finding your way around :)

I'm sure you would have books on the Beatles and at least one listening station with Beatles cds or records :-)

Good luck in your studies!

I forgot to mention that I also have an MS in Behavioral Science. I had to get a second masters to keep my job at the university. I call my Behavioral Science masters my "for me" degree. I enjoyed studying all the psych stuff. I do get to use some of what I learned to help the students in the psychology program gather materials for papers. Humm, a paper on the psychology of the Beatles or using Beatles songs for therapy, or…

^ Interesting. There are so many ''me degrees'' I'd love to do. After all, I do enjoy studying and why should it only be to have a career with it afterwards? Uni is so expensive here, though, it's simply out of the question.

Welcome to any new members who joined!!!

To other people: Sorry I haven't been online a lot, I'm in my last 2 years of school now and the workload is massive so I'm studying/doing homework all the time and my head and back are killing me a-hard-days-night-george-10

Seeing as we're talking about libraries/degrees:

My opinion on

Libraries: Love them, the thought of getting to read books and not have to pay :D 'tis great! But as I have commented before there are no Beatles books in my public library!!!!! And the next closest library is 30 mins away from in the car and I can't drive for another 2 years!

Degrees: Hoping to study in NUIG (the main university in Galway. F.Y.I for all the people who just joined/don't know- I'm from Ireland. I would like to do a German & Commerce degree in college but it's getting harder every year to get into the course. paul-mccartney But if I do get that course it means I get to study my 3rd year in Germany, yayyyy which means a weekend trip to Hamburg!

But my dream degree is a degree in "The Beatles, Popular Music and Society" in Hope University Liverpool but I do kind of want a job in life…so I don't think I'd ever do that course a-hard-days-night-george-10. It is a postgrad degree as well and I'd have to do something in music so blue-meanie

It looks like Ireland has a robust Interlibrary Loan system set up. Ask the librarians at your local library about having books from other libraries sent to you local library for you to check out.

You, my dear friend are an absolute legend. I was always shy about asking my librarian for Beatles books but I can just put in my library card code number and a text will be sent to me once they're in the library. I'll never have to my face my librarian yayyy a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

Oh and a million apples for you too

Wow, I have never had anybody agree with me on that. People always look at me funny when I smell books, but it's for real the greatest smell ever, new or old.

I'm a book sniffer from way back too *wave*

I have a collection of old Encyclopedias / Encyclopaedias dating from 1875 to the present day and each has its own characteristic and distinctive odour.  I can't pick up a volume without checking that the smell is still safely there – I find it oddly comforting!

1875? Wow. I'd love to own something that old. I think the oldest book I own is my great-grandmother's copy of a book called 'Ballet Shoes' – printed in 1917 if I remember correctly. That one smells divine, and yes, oddly comforting.

Libraries are very cool places, love the smell of an old library building, very welcoming and soothing (the new ones are normally odourless). Shamefully there are ongoing plans to reduce the number of libraries in the UK due to finance, its seemingly dropped off the media radar at the moment. A ridiculous idea that would be detrimental to local communities and take so much away from those who get so much benefit from them (eg the elderly). I loved going to the local library as a kid and having all these wonderful books to read, so many options.

My town has been debating for years whether to get rid of the youth club or the library. It's sad that either has to go as both places have played a big part in the local comunity for years (the dos at the YC in the late 70s/80s are somewhat notorious), but the reality is that neither are used very much – the library unfortunately isn't that big so everyone goes to another one that's further away.

Hallo, I'm Alessio, 43, from Cerveteri, near Roma (and very near to the sea), Italia. I'm a P'liceman and I like to play bass and sing in my free time. I love the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Janis, Jimi, Pink Floyd, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Aretha, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and other 100…

I love all the Fabs' albums, anyway my favourite ones are "Revolver" (that is my all-time-ever n. 1 lp) and "Abbey Road".

…have a nice day you all!

Sweet Ballet Shoes! One of the books I used to read as a young sprite and may/may not read at least once a year a-hard-days-night-john-7 (It's a great book to read when you're sick and if you have a spare 2 hours you can get it read then). I always wanted to be like Pauline…..

Benvenuto to the forum Alessio! I've never been to the mainland in Italy- I've only been to Sicily but I think I'm flying into to Venice next year and moving on to Austria so that should be good!
