The Professional Book Nerd

In case anybody was wondering how to catalog a live animal →

Cooper is a therapy dog available for check-out at the Harvard Library for 30 minutes intervals from 9-5 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The discussion came up in my cataloging class as to how one would go about creating a record for him. The link above will take you to his OPAC record. I think my life has been completed.
