  Just abut. Befre I d thugh, this bk n early navigatin I have been using this bk quite a bit fr a research prject. And I wuld like t wn it actually. And well it s an ld bk, and there were tw cpies n the shelf just nw, s I was wndering if I culd buy ne. I was talking t this guy the ther day, and he said the library sld bks n ccasin. Is that right?

  Librarian

  He is prbably talking abut ur annual bk sale. We have ne every spring.

  Student

  K. Hw d yu decide which bks t sell? Are they duplicates?

  Librarian

  A lt are duplicates. If we have mre than ne cpy f a title and it hasn t been checked ut in a few years, in that case it might end up at the sale.

  Student

  I ve actually tried t find this bk nline but n luck s far. I was really hping t buy it.

  Librarian

  Well, that particular bk well, it prbably wn t be up fr sale this year. Mst bks in the sale cme frm ff-site strage.

  Student

  ff-site strage?

  Librarian

  That s where we keep bks that haven t been used fr several years. They are still in the catalg, which means they can be checked ut if yu fill ut a frm. It takes maybe a day r tw t retrieve ne f them.

  Student

  I see.

  Librarian

  And then befre we decide t include a bk in the sale, we review its circulatin histry again, which can take a while. We ve gt a lt f bks in strage.

  Student

  Librarian

  Well, that plus the main thing is t make sure students have access t the infrmatin in the bks. A lt f them are available in electrnic frmat these days, even the really ld nes. Yu knw, they have been preserved that way.

  Student

  S mst f the bks fr sale are lder bks.

  Librarian

  Well, we get bk dnatins t. And lts f thse are new. Again, a librarian reviews them and decides whether t catalgue them r put them up fr sale.

  Student

  Is this sale pen t the public?

  n the secnd day. It s a tw-day sale. The first day is fr students, faculty and staff thugh, which is great. We usually need abut twenty vlunteers fr the sale. And well, if yu vlunteer, yu get first sht at everything in advance.

  Lecture1-Art Histry (Dadaism)

  Narratr

  Listen t part f a lecture in an art histry class.

  Prfessr

  All right. S last week we started talking abut the painters and sculptrs wh were part f the art mvement called Dada. But I dn t want yu t think the ideas we intrduced last time were limited t painting, sculpture, that srt f thing.

And well, I mean, the First Wrld War was raging, s they didn t see much beauty, reasn r prgress in the wrld. Instead, they saw a wrld that was chatic, randm, a wrld that didn t make sense. And if that s the way the wrld was, well, they wanted their art t reflect that.

  S let s let s review a cuple f key ideas that were the backbne f Dada art.

  First, the Dadaists wanted t cmpletely reject the classical idea f art. Classical ideas like prprtin, balance all the things yu think abut when yu think abut great art. Great art invlved reasn, the lgic, the beauty that the Dadaists wanted t verthrw.

  S, well, yu knw, t a Dadaist, classical artwrk was a reflectin f utdated thinking! That s why Dadaists created sculptures like the nes we saw last week. Remember the stl with the b
