I Remember Nothing And Other Reflections - by Nora Ephron

'Library" was only used one time in this book; I couldn't stop thinking about it though. "There was a morgue-a library of clippings that was available for research-at Newsweek; morgues are one of the great joys of working in journalism." (p. 21). The library as morgue, and the morgue as a joy. I am not even sure where to begin writing about this. Perhaps there is a different word we can start using to refer to the clippings departments of newspapers and magazines - something that would evoke the "joy" of libraries better than "morgue". I am open for suggestions.
