Alex Weiss, in her incisive Bustle piece “7 Reasons Libraries Are Our Only Hope In Case Of A Zombie Apocalypse,” cites “Maintaining Academic Library Services During the Zombie Apocalypse” by Sarah McHone-Chase and Lynne M. Thomas in Braaaiiinnnsss!: From Academics to Zombies, ed. Robert Smith, University of Ottawa Press, 2011. You can read the chapter online at Google Books for free.
Thanks, Lynne M. Thomas!

As you may or may not know, Cosmopolitan releases each year’s worth of issues so that if you stack them in order you’ll see a bare-chested man. The Colorado College stacks are usually missing an issue or two, which means that instead of a man, we get a monster. Thanks, Diane Westerfield!
Certainly the best sign I’ve ever seen in the background of an ESPN report. Vanderbilt University students, we library shenaniganers stand in solidarity with you on this one. Thanks, Dina Wood and Diane Westerfield!
University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. The text with this image is “There’s a guy at my University who goes by the name, Kush Jenkins, that leaves people weed in the library.” Thanks, Steve Lawson!
