Some of Murphy's Library Laws (found within the humour section on the IFLA website):
- When a teacher recommends a library book to a student, you can be certain that the teacher has checked out the only copy and has lent it to a friend in Peru
- Make 17 subject headings for a book and you will find that you should have made 18
- If it's a good book, it's out of stock. If it's an excellent book, it's out of print
- If you made the system foolproof you discover that everybody has suddenly become geniuses
- No matter how long you keep an article or piece of information you will never need it till you throw it away
- Students always require a 400 word article for a 500 word essay
