TPO 7 Conversation 2的内容为一个学生前来了解学校图书馆的各部门名称与位置，其中*及的各种名称都是大家在备考过程中必须掌握的，包括collection of rare books, photo copier room, history section, internet section, front desk等等。除此之外，大家也需要掌握以下同类词汇audio-video center视听中心，database数据库，copy room复印室。
、被召回的书会有还书期限，不在还书期内还过去，会受到不允许借书等的惩罚。如TPO 9 Conversation 2
S: No, I left it in my dorm room. These are books I need to check out today. Is it OK if I bring that one by in a couple of days?
L: Actually, you need to return it today. That is if you want to check out those books today. That''s our policy.
S: Oh, I didn''t know that.
L: Yeah, not a lot of people realize that. In fact, every semester we get a few students who have their borrowing privileges suspended completely because they haven''t returned books. They''re allowed to use books only in the library. They''re not allowed to check anything out because of unreturned books.
Q. What is the woman trying to explain when she mentions students who have lost their borrowing privileges?
mWhy the man should not photocopy part of the book
mThe reasons for one of the library’s policies
mWhat will happen if the man does not return the book
mThe reason the man has to fill out a form
第二、一个班的学生需要用同一本参考书目来写论文，可以要求教授向图书馆预约对应学生数量的copies。如TPO 14 Conversation 1
Librarian: Well, it’s still here in the library. So people must be using it. You know this seems to be a very popular book tonight. We show six copies. None are checked out. And, yet you didn’t even find one copy on the shelves. Is it a big class?
Student: Maybe about Seventy Five?
Librarian: Well, you should ask your professor to put some of the copies on reserve. You know about the ‘Reserve system’, right?
首先，图书管理员会根据你的专业判断你的阅读需求。如TPO 7 Conversation 2
L: Sure. I will be glad to. What''s your major area of study?
S: Latin American Literature.
L: OK. Well, over here''s the section where we have language, literature and the arts. And if you go down stairs you will find history section. Generally, the students who concentrate in Latin American literature find themselves research in the history section a lot.
Q. Why does the librarian point out the history section to the student?
mShe wants to point out the closest area containing copy machines
mShe assumes that he will need to do research there
mThe student is looking for a book he used at his last school
mStudents sometimes mistakenly assume that the section contains literature books
更令人满意的是，学生*出的学术问题，只要图书管理员帮得上忙，他会尽量帮助。比如在TPO 4 Conversation 1中学生需要研究一部play的影评，恰巧图书管理员在这部play刚开始表演的时候看过，所以主动为学生*供了许多有用的信息，学生*后表示完成教授的任务不再纠结了。
图书管理员会在能力范围以内为学生*供帮助。如TPO 9 Conversation 2中学生正在使用中的书被召回，觉得很困惑不能理解，这时候图书管理员主动*出可以帮助学生复印他需要用的那部分。
*为人性化的一点是图书馆可以*供interlibrary loan service馆际服务。也就是说如果学生需要借一本此图书馆没有而其他图书馆有的书刊，那么图书馆可以代为从其他图书馆运过来这本书，非常人性化。请看TPO 7 Conversation 2听力原文：
L: Our loan period is a month. Oh I should also mention that we have an inter-library loan service. If you need to get to hold a book that’s not in our library, there is a truck that runs between our library and a few public and university libraries in this area. It comes around three times a week.
S: Hey, that''s great! At my last school, it’d take a really long time to get the materials I needed. So when I had a project, I had to make a plan away in advance. This sounds much faster.
Q. What does the student imply about the interlibrary loan service at his last school?
mHe never used it
mHe came to appreciate it
mIt was inconvenient
mIt was expensive
