While I was not in summer school this year, for various reasons, this is the
story I remember from last year.  I was told Dorothy Abbenhouse hated computers
so much that she banned them from Olcott.  When John Algeo took office as
president, they began to pop up everywhere in that wonderful old building.  I
believe many are custom-made by someone that works at Olcott because it is
cheaper to build them from components rather than buy them off the shelf.  How
do I know this?  My husband has built four so far.

The library is in the process of moving from the card catalog system to having
all the titles stored in a computer database, but typing all those titles is
slow and there is a staffing problem right now.

Anyone have anything to add to this?
