The Bard of Bucks New University Libraries on Dots

We’re a curious breed, us Librarians, as we stick different coloured dots and labels to library books that mean little or nothing to the borrower. They do have a purpose, honest! Read on for another amusing poem from our resident Bard in the Library:

The Blue Dot

If you take a quick look at the spine of your book,

You may spot a blue dot, then again, you may not.

If you do, don’t ignore, keep your feet on the floor,

If you feel you should kneel, put your weight on one heel.

Soon the book will unbind and the spine will unwind,

The blue dot will unclot and you’ll know what is what.

Then you can relax.
