Not as exciting as Gangnam Style

At the community college we have an online form that students can fill out to place interlibrary loan requests. It asks for the title, author, etc., and one of the items is "Cited in?," asking where the student found a reference to the item(so that if the information entered on the form does not match a real journal article, the ILL person has help finding the real citation).

Last week a student put that something was "Cited in? MLA Style."

  1. oh dear. communication is so very, very difficult. I suppose the library could revise the form to say "where did you see the item cited? Give the citation of the book or article" but that looks pretty draconian.
