April 2, 2007 - Virgina
Welcome to the new and improved Typo of the Day for Librarians. Our first example, Virgina, started off as a news story. West Virginia won the NIT tournament last week. At the end of the game they started distributing the championship t-shirts. However, the company that had printed them the night before gave the fans a surprise by economizing on a letter. Surprisingly, this word did not appear on the list of library typos, so we checked it out in OhioLINK and did a double take. There were more than 200 hits - making it one of the worst typos that you could ever find in a library catalog. WorldCat showed more than 1000 hits for this. Run do not walk, to your OPAC and see how you fare.
