SUDOC, Putting the "eww" in

A polite librarian should never correct a patron when he or she mistakenly asks to see your "government suppository" collection. Once the desired government document is checked out, the library has no business knowing how the patron plans to consume it.

And when a patron asks to see the gyneocology (genealogy) collection be sure introduce yourself as "Dr. Anon."
