via Swiss Army Librarian » Reference Question of the Week – 11/7/10 :: Brian Herzog.

The last two blog posts for this class this year will be on the lighter side of things.  It feels good to be almost finished with this long and very stressful semester.  However, I completed all my work on time, for the most part I earned the grades I hoped to earn, and for that I am happy with myself. 

 

This week from the Swiss Army Librarian, Herzog mentioned helping a patron locate the meaning of this little symbol * when used with the hands and not on paper.  Hmm…  I’ve never seen anybody use it before, but apparently it is like air quotes, but instead of using quotes you use an asterisk which makes it become an airsterisk.  Interesting!

 

Check out Herzog’s blog to see the video associated with the explanation of this symble.  Here’s a tip, If you don’t want to watch the entire video you can see the example starting at 6 minutes.

 

Isn’t the library an awesome place to learn and explore?
