Active referral

Eileen, one of our Reference Librarians, was asked to give one of her retired colleagues a ring to let them know the details about an event they've been invited to.

Imagine Maudie's delight to come back from lunch to find this note on her keyboard:

I have rung Daisy Hill and just got her answerphone. Please could you ring her and pass on the details.

Gadjo, I know that at least three of my readers could tell tales of reference librarians that would beggar belief.
