And so begins research season.

I started researching today. I cannot describe how much the libraries here drive me crazy. I will attempt to explain. Imagine waring feudal states viciously competing against each other who own their loyalty to the King, but never actually contribute any troops when the king comes around asking them to fulfill their obligations. Oh they talk big, but they know their power is measured by how many soldiers they have. They don't really care where the soldiers come from, the important thing is that they have more than their rivals and don't give them to the king. Now replace feudal states with libraries, soldiers with books, and the king with the main library. Now understand why books on political science will be in the sociology and economics, but never in the main library.
