Narrator:Listen to a conversation at the information desk in the library.
Employee:Hi, can I help you?
Student:Yeah, I was looking for a book and according to the catalogue on the computer system, it’s here in the library, but it’s not on the shelf where it’s supposed to be.
Employee:Okay. You mean you found out where the book was supposed to be?
Student:Yeah, and I checked the exact shelf.
Employee:Okay. I mean the reason I'm asking is we have a new computer system. Sometimes people get confused by it.
But yeah, sometimes things just get put back in the wrong place. Or sometimes when you looked through the computer for the book, did you notice the box on the screen that says “status” on top?
Employee:Okay. Do you remember what it said in the status box?
Student:Sure, it said returned.
Employee:Okay. That means we just got the book back and haven’t had a chance to reshelf it yet. Otherwise it would say “on the shelf”. It’s probably still sitting on the librarian’s desk. If it can wait, come back tomorrow. It should be on the shelf by then.
Student:Okay. Well, I kind of want to get started today. I’m doing research on a project for my geology class on volcanoes
and one of the volcanoes I want to write about is White Island.
Employee:White Island? That’s an island off the coast of Ireland. There are no volcanoes there, are there?
