Advice for Summer Associates re: email

Heather Waltman, Interlibrary Loan & Reference Librarian

As the summer begins, you may enjoy this very brief article that appeared in the June 30, 2003 issue of the New Yorker. It's a humorous look at the Summer Associate Season in New York, "that debauched perennial perkfest for rising 3Ls at Harvard and Fordham and Yale." The experiences recounted in the article may differ from yours, but they're useful in demonstrating what not to do on the job. Enjoy!
