It had a blue cover…

Not being able to remember the title of a book you love or need is a peculiar pain that we see often in the library.  “Ohhhhhhh,” they grimace.  “It was about this big… the cover was blue!”  Riiiiiiiight.

Sometimes we can coax enough details out of a person to guess the title, and have the great satisfaction of seeing their face clear as they say with relief, “That’s it!  You got it!”   That’s a lot of fun.

It doesn’t always work that way, though.  This must be a universal problem, because the New York Public Library blog has featured a number of online resources with which to tackle a knotty “what was the title” dilemma.   Take a look… but always remember to try your local librarian first!
