Can't Knock the Hustle Part II.
While I was "doing MLIS work" aka eBay hustling, I came across this auction for a "professional" librarian offering her, *sorry*, their special librarian research skillset for one special child in America for the low price of $29.99. If you don't want to be sniped(that would be having someone outbid you at the last second), you can BIN for $40(that's "Buy It Now" for all you non-eBayers) .
Like the saying goes, "Can't Knock the Hustle," but this just reeks of desperation and failness. Seriously though, a lot of libraries offer this service for free, online and in-branch, so what dumb-dumb would fork over the dough for this?
Who pays for researching (wikipedia-ing) their elementary paper on the history of Thanksgiving? Maybe, *maybe*, this service would be "worth it" if you just did the schoolwork for the kid in MLA format of course.
If anyone seriously bids on this, then I have an MLIS in progress I'd like to sell you at an unbelievable low price. Sure, you won't get the expensive piece of paper until a year from now, but think of it as a CD reaching its maturity date.
