an outlier for now

margaret atwood is too broad
a search term

   you're looking at dystopia
   in the handmaid's tale

   we use our heads
   we do the work

      sometimes you've gotta go
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh


can you see the power
of subject headings

   if it's not linear
   you're doing good

  (we ran into this
   with the tomato soup thing

      we used our noggins
      and we did a keyword search


you bait the end of the fishing hook
with what you think you're going to pull in

   they are our friends
   the boolean operators

   yes that's accurate
   hang on to that
