Greater Phoenix Digital Library - lag time

Myron has to download records of new items the GPDL acquires, so it's possible there could be something we own in that collection that's not in our catalog. You might doublecheck there for an item - Anbolyn and I have both found items there recently that weren't in the catalog.

AZ Rep microfilm has local sections

I rediscovered today that the Arizona Republic microfilm has all of the Valley sections (e.g. Chandler Republic, of course, but also Mesa, Tempe, Gilbert, Scottsdale, NW and NE). Had someone needing an article from the Gilbert Tribune that neither he nor I could find online, and he'd tried the Southeast Regional library, who'd looked in their database with no luck. BTW, it IS possible to use the Internet on the fiche/film reader computer. Just try going to MS help and then going to help online. I was able to send him an email with the article attached from that computer.

When will I get my stimulus payment check?

Had a question tonight about when a patron would be getting his check. This is pretty easy to find out (it's prominent on the IRS homepage), but FYI:
And it's a reminder to always do direct deposit (so much quicker)! Current as of 5-6-08:
Last two SSN digits: / Payments will be transmitted no later than:
00 through 20 - May 2
21 through 75 - May 9
76 through 99 - May 16

Paper checks will also go out based on Social Security number. For Social Security numbers ending in 00 through 09, the paper checks will be mailed starting May 9 and will continue through May 16. A similar process will be repeated in the following weeks.
Last two SSN digits: / Payments will be mailed no later than:
