It's all about releasing your inner sociopath
It feels so wrong
I need a document from Iraq, which I can't locate anywhere. I'll need to contact the Iraqi National Library. It feels... wrong to contact them for something so (seemingly) trival as an article from a geological journal.

I just spent the past few minutes checking the head of the library's old online Blog, which leaves me feeling even more selfish. However, it's amazing what they've done with as little as they have, and with as much fighting as is going on all around them. Kudos to them.

2 talons or Rake your talons?

On the other hand, a mundane request might be just what the therapist ordered for the librarian. It's the normal results that make the exceptional transition seem accomplished.

Yeah, a co-worker and I were talking about that after I posted this.

It still is odd when you're requesting documents from areas that are war-zones, traditional enemies of the US, or even going through natural disasters. I don't want to mention them, since it could be a touchy subject; at the same time, I hate ignoring the fact that there's nothing else going on except for the transaction.

Ultimately, I tend towards keeping it on a purely professional level, with lots and lots of politeness from me. I'm just never positive it's the proper approach.
