Use the PAC, Luke…

January 6, 2011

The blog Libreaction looks at Jocasta Nu, Jedi Librarian and the Jedi Archives after seeing her in an episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars:

So what of the Jedi Library access policy? Well I am informed that the archives were open all hours (pleased to hear they got something right) and were accessible to all Jedi in need of information (ah but just Jedi you understand, not any old random members of the Coruscant populace researching for their GCSEs). What is more, Jedi were ‘welcome to scan or copy most any data in the Stacks’ although the next sentence of the policy rather contradicts this: ‘removal of any material from the Archives was strictly prohibited’ – some work needed on that policy methinks. Furthermore it transpires that remote access to databases was completely prohibited, meaning that Jedi had to find time in their busy droid-battling schedule to travel to the Library, which probably explains why its COMPLETELY EMPTY throughout the episode I was watching. I can’t imagine that Jocasta’s annual footfall stats are higher than mine and on the face of it she certainly appears to have a much more exciting collection.

Because of Jocasta Nu’s inability to help Obi-Wan Kenobi locate some information he needed in one of the Star Wars prequels, she has been named “The worst librarian in the galaxy.” What do you think?

    ‘if a record doesn’t appear in our archives, it doesn’t exist’….someone needs to work on her reference interviewing skills.
