Yeah. I still spend a lot of time in libraries, but yeah. It [the internet] allows me to do things right here that I used to have to go to a library for.
It just saves time. I don't... You know, I don't have to trudge around to all the local libraries looking to see if they have any books on Marie Curie, or if they have a particular title by so-and-so. I can see... I can see if it's in the library. I can find out what the library hours are. I can talk to a librarian if I need to.
Even with libraries now, if I'm looking for something specific, I can look online.
This is another thing that relates to sort of digital stuff. At least in my mind, the old... One of the only things I miss about pre-digital is card catalogs because they... Thumbing through a card catalog, I would be taken on many more weird tributaries than I get doing a computer search in a library on whatever.
I go to the library less because there's so many things I can access online and I can print them out at home, or parts of them. I can, depending on what their security and parameters are like, I can sometimes lift a phrase I want to use out of a website and put it right in to the poem--
I got waylaid and got real keen on poetry and began haunting the library of my alma mater in the department of the skinny books.
