Hodgepodge of Photos

Here are a bunch of photos that I was going to write a blog post around but never found the gumption to actually do so. Enjoy the randomness!

We call our resident pigeon Barry White due to his soulfull sound.

My camera doesn't do justice to this isopod.

You can't tell in this photo, but the snail was blue with an almost translucent shell.

I had one of those odd days where two completely different patrons asked me the same obscure copyright question about a hour apart. While I was looking up the answer online at www.copyright.gov I found out something even more odd:

Apparently, so many freaks  people have bothered the U. S. Copyright Office about how to copyright their sightings of Elvis that they put this question on their FAQ page!

Sadly for all you Waffle House patrons, you can ONLY copyright your actual pictures of Elvis. Read the full text from the Copyright Offive here for details.

This is important info, as there was a scuffle over copyright of a picture of a dead Elvis  (don’t worry fans, I’m sure it was faked just like those landing on the Moon shots…) from that bastion of authenticity, the National Enquirer.

Incidentally, there is a really cool site called Ask a Librarian that the Library of Congress has here. What I really like is the policy note at the bottom that says:

“Please note that the scope of the services does not include: compilation of extensive bibliographies, requests for information connected with contests, completion of school or work assignments, translations or research in heraldry or family history.”

Can I use that at my job, please?! People, do your own homework!
