A polite librarian is a good librarian.
This debate is always fun when it comes to documentation for help guides. Those that say “earl” want it written as “an URL”, while those that say “U-R-L”, want it written as “a URL”. This is the same debate for SQL – is it “S-Q-L” or “sequel”? I can hardly wait to retire.
I had a patron keep telling me she couldn't find "Earl." And I was beginning to think she was crazy until she pointed out what she meant!
If the URL/Earl debate is not mind-numbingly tedious enough. WC3 has declared both obsolete. The new approved term is now, Uniform Resource Identifier or URI, so expect a URI/Yuri debate coming to a library near you.monster librarian, did you tell them you can't fund Earl without hitting the "any" key?
