This has been a great discussion - I've found it very informative and my
thanks to all who posted their thoughts and opinions. No more from me on
that, but a little bit about the Aberdeen. I am a member of the NS
Government Libraries Council, and about 8 years back we had a contact for
that library on our membership list. When I tried to get updated contact
info, I found that the position had not been filled for some time. I think
that the last person to work at that library was a tech.
