I just spent a long time checking the CDs and found that several of our highly trained library staff think that Elvis Presley should be filed under ELV and Celine Dion under DIO etc., etc. When I mentioned this to a colleague he said 'Oh yeah, they're not like books you know. Red Hot Chili Peppers is RED, isn't it, so it's by the first name.' Am slightly disturbed that he can work in public libraries for two years and not realise that Red is not a band's first name. I had to go on the HMV website to show him I was right. I'm not actually leading up to anything with this, just pointing out that there are some very stupid people in the world, and I have to work with quite a lot of them.
