Mild-mannered librarian by day. . . slightly less mild-mannered librarian by night.
My thought process:1st - "Oh dear god"2nd - I wonder if it was a male or female asking (I can't imagine male, but nothing would actually surprise me)3rd - I wonder what her [your] response was...Updated: 4th - I am so sick of that blog error
It was a female student who asked. The male student sitting beside her was appropriately mortified.I told her that I was not familiar with any research regarding the effectiveness of such a plan.
