Jesus Chris

This example of why it is important to think seriously about placement of labels as a librarian is brought to you via my friend and colleague Brent Hege, who shared the above image on Facebook.

    Librarian subliminally affected by current TV ads (low T).

    Ok, I’ll be the boneheaded literalist here and ask what does this mean? As I grew up in the church, I heard Jesus referred to as both Jesus Christ and Christ Jesus with equal reverence and sincerity. The two books were obviously two volumes of a series, so they would be placed together in the library. What is the special meaning of highlighting the placement.

    Or are you noticing that somehow, inadvertently some person or machjine…in pasting a label on the binding covered the “T?” I see it as no more significant than machines that put address labels on magazines sent through the mail often put the label over an interesting picture or comment on the magazine cover. I see nothing sinister.

      I don’t think you read the spines carefully enough, as you didn’t notice what happened to one of the volumes as the result of placing a label (subsequently removed) where they did.

        Well, I did see that it says CHRIS instead of CHRIST because someone carelessly…or some machine mindlessly…put a label on it…is that it?{:
