Star Wars Episode II (and a quarter) Attack of the Reference Question
Master Obi-Wan Kenobi’s reference interview at the Jedi Temple Library is a failure, however, a visit with Jedi master Yoda finally gets the information he needs, when better reference technique is employed. Yoda–apparently not only a mentor, but also an independent information professional–restates the information, the problem, and then asks an open ended question:
“Lost a planet, Master Obi-Wan has. How embarrassing, how embarrassing.” – Yoda

On a related note, I found two topical posts on the Libreaction blog out of the UK, by Andy Priestner: Check out Jedi Librarian (December 31, 2010) and Going Viral (January 16, 2011).
