My quest would have been aided had Robarts had any usable computers. (By usable, I mean one for which I don't have to wait at least an hour to look up a book or two in the card catalog). I found a useful book, found a number of useful Renaissance-era authors, and then walked all the way back across campus to libraries where I knew there to be usable computers. I looked up the authors. And of course the books were all the way back at Robarts. I'll return there tomorrow.
Meanwhile, today's been every so full of little errand running activities: finding out about my fellowship since I'd heard nothing from the project and it's already the first week of classes; trying to get a room for a meeting next week; looking up information which might come in handy for this proposal I really would like to send out tomorrow; and finding a few more people interested in helping to organize Vagantes. (Anyone out there want to hop on the bandwagon?)
This appears to be party week and I'm missing at least 4 of them by going home. Ah well. At least I can make the farewell party tomorrow for my department's graduate coordinator. I think the department will fall apart without him.
