Alice is our newest stapler. She is the latest in a long line of previously-unnamed compatriots who valiantly gave their lives in the noble service of holding your papers together. They endured—until they could endure no more—horrific slamming, pounding, whomping, and jamming, multiple painful staple extractions, and the unrealistic expectations of those who thought a mere office desk stapler could bite through a fifty-page stack of reserve readings.
But now things will be a little different. Alice (who claims she is guaranteed jam-free, but we’ll see about that) will help us keep track of how many staplers we go through in a year. Like a tropical storm or hurricane, Alice’s name indicates that she is the first of her kind for the year. If—saints preserve us—she falls in the line of duty, she will be replaced by Bert. If Bert falls, then Claudia. And so forth. We hope Claudia will get to stay in her snug, warm closet until well into 2011. But if spring rolls around and we’re already up to Xavier, Yolanda, or Zigmund, you’ll know that this academic year has been...STAPLERGEDDON!!!

The database Biology Digest was removed by Cambridge Scientific Abstracts from their database offerings earlier this month, so we no longer have access to that database.
Due to the withdrawal of support by The Getty Research Institute for the Bibliography of the History of Art, online access to the index will end on March 31, 2010.
