I just wrote the sentence "librarians at Laurentian are not allowed to have any responsibility for circulation or ILL" in response to a question from colleagues at another university and they must think we live in bizarro land.
We do! It's unbelievable.
The non-librarian manager to whom those responsibilities have been transferred is on vacation, so I referred my colleagues to our University Librarian.
However it turns out that our University Librarian is *also* on vacation. (They hadn't created any entries on the Library & Archives absence calendar because why would they? They're above that sort of thing I guess.)
So I followed up with my colleagues to say "So unfortunately it seems that nobody with authority over circulation or ILL will be available until the 20th."
I guess this is what happens when a power-hungry clown runs your library.
