The book I’m looking for is a Hotel book with the name of the owners of major hotel chains.
Such as Sheraton, owned by…etc,etc…
but this sheraton owned by, Mr. Joe smith.
Is there such a book? I thought there was one, it was about 12inches length, 6 inches wide. If you have that, please let me know.
PLEASE CALL ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
ANSWER PERSON RESPONDS: Your question is complicated first, by who actually owns all the hotels in a major chain. They may be franchised to individual owners. They also may franchised to groups that own several, or ownership is retained by the parent corporation, in which case the senior person involved with a particular facility is the manager.
All of the directories of individual hotels do not list owners. You might try the American Hotel & Motel Association (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.

Finally, Answer Person doesn’t hit the “Suggestion” book for reference support as quickly as most (including A-Person) would like. Certainly not in a timely manner if your questions needed quick assistance. That is why there are alternatives, including:
1. Our phone service, but coming from California this may not be the most reasonable (a realizing that we are open, normally, until 10 PM only Sunday-Thursday, and until 5 PM on Fridays and Saturdays); or
2. A local library–there are several good ones in the San Jose area; or
3. E-mail Reference at email@example.com.
Over weekends and during evening hours, zerox machines in Perkins (especially in basement floors) are often out of order because paper jams are left uncleared. Is it possible to have someone go around and clear the jam from time to time after the regular office hour? The congestion of zerox machine use should be alleviated if all machines are working.
ANSWER PERSON RESPONDS: Office Products does have people check the machines in the off hours, but Answer Person is sending your comment on for their review. Do you think one copy will be enough?
who are you, answerman?
ANSWER PERSON RESPONDS: Who is anyone of us?
We are all searching for that answer, and perhaps my path takes me down the road charted by others.

ANSWER PERSON RESPONDS: This book is held by many libraries, though not by Duke. A list of several in North Carolina appears at the bottom of this response.
FYI, a much better way to submit reference questions is through AskRef (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Reference Department checks that daily, whereas the Answer Person is not nearly as responsible.
Also, Duke faculty, students and staff can request books from other libraries using the forms on the Interlibrary Loan home page (http://www.lib.duke.edu/ill/ILLhomepage.html)

Check out the Current Periodicals web page (http://www.lib.duke.edu/access/cpers.htm). Go to the “Current Awareness Service” section. It will link you to instructions on how to use the service.

The East-West Express is not very express. Last Thursday I submitted a request (via the web) for a Perkins book to be delivered to Lilly (yes, I know the Library was closed on Thursday). Now its 1600 on Monday and apparently the book hasn’t even been checked out to my name yet. I was under the impression that there was a pretty regular shuttle going back and forth between campuses. If the turnaround time is normally 2 days or more, that’s OK, I can make arrangements to trek over to west to pick up the book, I just need to know how long to expect.
ANSWER PERSON RESPONDS: I will pass your comment on to the circulation desks at Perkins and Lilly. It is possible that the hurricane threw staffing and operations off a bit, but it shouldn’t take this long.
