A brief note to all - never, ever make a boast such as this on your afternoon tea-break on a Friday.
I, madam, am one of the Elect Of God. I am a cataloguer.
It is my job to take whatever boring, incomprehensible crap you people throw at us, eat it, digest it, and excrete out a perfect level 1 AACR2-compliant MARC-formatted record. I’ve seen taxonomy papers, abstract maths, economics, corporate newsletters, friggin’ women’s magazines and, yes, legislation and case reports. I’ve been through hell and I’ve applied LCSH to it.
Sure enough, on picking up some work an hour later that Friday afternoon:
- "Castellnuovo-Mumford regularity and defining equations of a locally Cohen-Macaulay algebra."
- "Extending Hadamard conjugations to model sequence evolution with variable rates across sites"
- "On domain decomposition approach for a singularly perturbed diffusion-convection problem"
If there is a God, He doesn't love us. Or me, at least. But He does have a fine sense of humour.
