...sometimes completes a circle.
This week my colleague is sorting through books donated by a lecturer whom I've known through a library position I held 30 years ago, my first library job. As many of the books are in German, I've been helping out with translating the titles. (Have I mentioned that before becoming a librarian I used to be a German teacher?) I come across a book that had been weeded from that library's collection and then donated to the lecturer as it matched his teaching and research interests. There is the "withdrawn" stamp, which I would have stamped in that book, and when I turn to the back, there is the accession number 76-685, oh so neatly written in my hand, 30 years ago.
