Zombies, Fighting

If your library is invaded by zombies, a librarian should invite them all into the classroom and bore them to death with a lecture about scholarly versus popular periodicals.

How is it possible to distinguish a student from a zombie anyway?

@Anonymous: I was about to quip that one has brains and the other eats them, but ... it does occur to me that a great many students I've encountered might just be zombie-proof, offering no nourishment ... [wicked grin]

If you are not an academic library, you have to find other topics. Fortunately, my library is a Patent and Trademark Depository Library, so we can just give them a talk on how to do a patent search...

You can discuss in detail library policies, getting a new card, closings, budget crunches, new fines, how to use the computers.

Any of the above should kill a zombie from boredom in no time.

But what if the zombie IS the librarian? I found this post because I was searching for how to kill a zombie librarian.
