My friend Ann asked me last week if I had a particular issue of The New Yorker from last fall, as a friend of hers suggested that she read an article therein. I looked and looked, and could never find this article and so ended up dumping all of my fall issues on Ann’s doorstep on Saturday night with hopes that she would be more successful.
This morning, on a lark, I went to the PEI Provincial Library Online Databases page, entered my library card number, searched the “General Reference” database, and found the text of the article, in its entirety.
I’ve mentioned this resource before, but it bears repeating: you’ll find a lot of “offline” resource hidden in those databases, and as our PEI tax dollars have already paid for access to them, we might as well take advantage of them.
And next time you see Harry Holman, give him a hug.
