I checked out this movie in two minutes flat

 Permanent link

I just searched for, found, and checked out a movie in two minutues flat. And you can too. That's 120 seconds to get a library material! Many of us might be used to getting things that we want fast; but if you think about it, this is pretty amazing. Our library has done a lot to make it that way. Here's how I did it:

  1. kpl.gov, clicked on "catalog," then clicked "movie search" (12 seconds)
  2. typed in "inglourious basterds," enter (6 seconds)
  3. told me many copies were available at Central Branch, Audiovisual Collection--in ACTION (7 seconds)
  4. went to lower level, AV department, ACTION, found alphebetically under "I" (26 seconds)
  5. went straight to self check out, right next to movies (4 seconds)
  6. checked out movie using the very fast and easy self check out station (12 seconds)

Ok, I lied...it took more like 67 seconds. Try to beat me (no running).

I would tell you what I thought of the movie, but haven't watched it yet; that will take 2 hours, 33 minutes.


Inglourious Basterds

I fell asleep watching it...so I don't think I liked it, or I was just tired.
