Best Selling Librarian?

Got to share with you guys something interesting. i'm sure that most of us have heard of the book, Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. What's interesting in today's news is that a librarian actually helped Dan Brown in his research for his books. Excerpts from The Athens News:

Stan Planton, an Ohio University librarian is quietly enjoying the fact that he contributed to the summer's New York Times' bestseller. "It's been very satisfying," said the head librarian at OU's Chillicothe campus, on the book's success. Planton assisted in researching topics for the book's author, Dan Brown.

Planton said he considers it part of his job as a librarian to assist in research no matter who is asking for help. "You never know who is going to come through the doors asking for help, either an author or a graduate student," he said.

Wouldn't it be great if your expertise and assistance as a librarian contributed to a best-selling book?
