Pink Floyd archivist contacts the reference desk

Pink Floyd…a band that knows where to get a reference question answered.

Pink Floyd…a band that knows where to get a
reference question answered.

When the historian and archivist for Pink Floyd has an important research question, where does he turn? Why, to Regent University Library, of course.

Thus, on May 28, Elliot Tayman e-mailed the Library Reference Desk from his office in New York and asked for help in locating an advertisement about founding member Roger Waters that appeared in a 1990 issue of Radio & Records. Although the aforesaid ad was not in the issue Mr. Tayman originally had in mind, Fran McGowan was able to find it after further research, for which, we assume, she will enjoy the lasting gratitude of Pink Floyd fans worldwide.
