Here's just what we need to improve the image of librarians....Ms Dewey, the sexy librarian with an attitude. Some have already suggested that she has considerably more sex appeal than an unnamed butler. (Starts with a "j".)
Maybe I don't get out enough, but Ms. Dewey is the first web site I've seen that provides commentary on the searches and actions of its users. If you become so enamored of Ms. Dewey that you fail to enter a search in a timely manner, she reprimands you. She even comments on your search terms. Try typing in your favorite, or not so favorite, politician to get a reaction. Bush, Gore or Rumsfeld as search terms will precipitate a personal response from the lovely Ms. Dewey.
I'm guessing that most people, me included, will just watch her waiting, not so patiently, for you to type something in the search box. The problem is that if you start browsing your search results, she still thinks you're not doing anything, and her complaints in the background start to sound like, umm, nagging. :-)
You'll need to have Flash v. 8 installed in order to enjoy the Ms. Dewey experience.
I wasn't impressed with the search results, and there's no question that Ms. Dewey would wear out her welcome in short order; she's definitely high-maintenance. But you've gotta try her at least once. Just a word of advice, if you take her for a test run at work, you might want to turn the volume down.
