Working at the Library

August 3rd, 2016 Posted in Uncategorized

I went to the library at John Jay College yesterday to copy 295 pages of a trial transcript. Mother of God, that was tedious. The frustrating thing is, I may not use any of it! The criminal is William McGlory, and he’s already been written about, probably because there is a wealth of material out there about him, like these trial transcripts. And with so many criminals to choose from, I think I should select people who are more unknown.

John Jay doesn’t have the newest microfilm readers, but their set-up was nonetheless pretty sweet. The microfilm reader is on the top right, which was hooked up to the computer on the left, which was making the pdf of the pages for me. It was agonizingly slow, but it’s so much better to have a pdf. (I stupidly left for John Jay without eating breakfast or lunch and it took me hours.) The computer on the bottom right is my laptop, and you can see I was checking the recent polls for the election.
