For this throwback Thursday, a pic of Smithsonian Libraries’ wonderful Interlibrary Loan staff with some cutting edge 1994 technology (note the “pen” style barcode scanner.) As a bonus - the view of our catalog in 1994.
50% of those pictured are still wonderful, and still with Interlibrary Loan  - lookin’ good Mike (far right) and Wanda (far left)!

If laughter leads to only one moment of thoughtfulness I will have accomplished my mission."
