學生:

打擾一下。您能告訴我如何使用圖書館嗎?

館員:

有張使用規則公佈在那裡。但參加「圖書館之旅」會對你更有幫助。

Student:

Excuse me. Could you show me how to use the library?

Librarian:

There’s an explanation posted on the wall there. But, it would be more helpful it you could join our library tour.

 

 

學生:

好主意!我該到哪報告?

館員:

就在這裡。從下周起,每周一次。不只圖書館的樓層簡介,借書以及館內設施使用也包含在內。

Student:

That sounds like a great idea! Where do I sign up?

Librarian:

Right here! The tour is offered on a weekly basis starting next week. Not only the layout of the library will be introduced, but also the procedures about checking out books and regulations for using the facility are also a part of the tour.

學生:

我反覆找了好多次,但我仍找不到我要的書。

館員:

那麼,我想有人把書借走了。你可以填一張預約單。

Student:

 I’ve looked over and over but I can’t seem to find the book I want.

Librarian:

In that case, I guess someone must have checked it out. You can put in a reserve slip.

 

 

學生:

預約單?我該怎麼做?

館員:

預約單在那邊的櫃台。你寫下書名以及書可以外借時聯絡你的方法。

 

 

Student:

A reserve slip? What should I do?

Librarian:

The slip is over that counter. You put down the name of the book you want to reserve and the way we can get hold of you when it becomes available.

 

 

學生:

如果我要找的是索引書呢?

館員:

那麼,恐怕你要等使用者將它歸還到書架以後才能使用因為工具索引書是不能外借的。

Student:

What if it’s a reference book I’m looking for?

Librarian:

Then, I’m afraid you will have to wait until someone returns it to the shelf, since reference books are not allowed to leave the premise.

學生:

對不起。我能外借這本書嗎。

館員:

當然可以。請讓我看看你的學生證。好了,你已辦好手續了。

Student:

Excuse me, can I check out this book?

Librarian:

Sure. Show me your student ID card, please. Okay, you are all set.

 

 

學生:

就這樣嗎?只有這些要求嗎?

館員:

多虧了科技幫忙。還有,這是「非流通」櫃台,你只能在此預約書籍。下次你如果要借書的話,到那邊標示「流通」的櫃台辦理。

學生:

我會記住這點的。謝謝你。

Student:

That’s it? Is that all?

Librarian:

Thanks to technology. By the way, this is a “No Circulation” counter which means you can only reserve books; if you want to check out books, go to next one marked “Circulation”.

Student:

I will keep that in mind. Thank you.

學生:

我需要這篇文章。我需到那個書架找呢?

館員:

嗯,”CA”代表加州。所以這是加州發行的報紙。但我們這裡沒有。

 

 

Student:

I need to get this article. Which shelf should I go to?

Librarian:

Oh, “CA” stands for California, so this newspaper was published in California. But, we don’t have it here.

 

 

學生:

但我需要這篇文章來寫報告!

館員:

也許你可以利用電腦的「管際互借」系統查查看在學校周邊是否有其他地方可以找到這篇文章。你可以用那邊的電腦。

學生:

好極了!非常謝謝你。

Student:

But I need it to finish my report…

Librarian:

Maybe you can try to find out if there’s any place around the university has it through the “Inter-library Loan” system. You can use the computer over there.

Student:

Great! Thanks a lot.
