  1. Re: “Keeping a ref question journal for questions in the evening” – Great! Would you be willing to share? Also, the easiest way for us to track needs is our stats form. Let’s talk offline about the possibility of having your questions logged there…Thanks!

  2. Hi Carrie!
    Of course I can share the questions I received. I have four questions, so there were not many. Would you like me to email them to you or post them on a blog?
