Break time! If you work with government information in a library, you probably also either work with maps or work with someone who does. So, you may be interested in The Atlas of True Names, which “reveals the etymological roots, or original meanings, of the familiar terms on today’s maps of the World and Europe.”
Even if you are not a map librarian, you may be interested in this book if you are a science fiction fan (see True Names by Vernor Vinge) or religious, or a fan of Tolkien.
Anyway, enjoy, and check out the map!
