    NARRATOR:Listen to part of a conversation at the information desk in the library.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Hi. Can I help you?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Where do I go, besides the computers, to look for books on New Zealand?

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Okay. You mean you don't want to use the computer?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Well, I haven't had any luck on the computers here.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Okay. I mean, the reason I'm asking is you pretty much have to go to the computer to find out where a book is.But I can help you find it on the computer if you like.

    FEMALE STUDENT:That would be great. I just spent half an hour and I couldn't find anything.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:I know how you feel. When I first started working here I couldn't find anything either... So you're looking for information on New Zealand. Is that right?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Yes.

    MALE EMPLOYEE: Is it like travel information that you're looking for?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Uh, no, actually what I'm looking for is information on a volcano in New Zealand.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Oh, okay. Because I know a travel agency that specializes in tours to New Zealand and Australia.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Oh, I'd love to go. I've heard it's beautiful.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Yeah.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Maybe someday.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Yep. [ready to start computer search] Okay, let's see. Okay, if you want to search the library holdings, and don't know the author's name or the exact title of the book or an article, you have to set up a keyword search.

    It's a special function. Then you can just type in some key words and let the computer do the search.

    FEMALE STUDENT:I see.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:[typing in key words] Okay, how about if we search for "volcanos" and "New Zealand?"

    FEMALE STUDENT: Sounds good.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:[as he conducts search] Is this for a geology class?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Mhm.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:[laughing] You must be in Professor Simpson's class.

    FEMALE STUDENT:No.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Oh. Well, he's a volcano expert, so I thought he might be teaching your class...

    FEMALE STUDENT:No. I've heard he's really good, though.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Yeah, that's what everyone says. Do you know the name of the volcano?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Mount Ruapehu.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Can you spell that?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Sure. It's R-U-A-P-E-H-U.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Okay. Mount Ruapehu. Let's see. [continuing search] So, uh, are you a geology major?

    FEMALE STUDENT:[laughs] Hardly.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Let me guess. You have to take a science course, and you don't want to have to deal with biology, chemistry or physics.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Exactly. But it's actually turned out to be a pretty interesting class.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Well, that's good. Um, uh, does it have to be a book, or could you use a journal article?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Mm, no, either one would be fine.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Okay, well here's a journal article...[pauses while searching, then wonders if the article is too old] Let me check to see if we have it... Okay, we have the article, but it's from 2001. Is that okay, do you think?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Well, I'd like to have look at it. The focus is really on eruptions in the last five years, but it might have some useful background material.

    MALE EMPLOYEE:Okay, well, let's see what else we can find.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Sounds good.

  • 旁白:听一段在图书馆信息咨询处的对话。

    工作人员:你好,我能帮你什么吗?

    学生:除了用电脑,我还能在哪里找到关于新西兰的书?

    工作人员:好。你是指你不想用电脑?

    学生:在这的电脑上我可没什么好运气。

    工作人员:好。我之所以这么问是因为你需要用电脑才能找到那本书在哪里。但如果你愿意,我能帮你在电脑上找到书。

    学生:那太好了。我刚花了半小时,什么都没找到。

    工作人员:我明白你的感受。当我刚在这儿工作的时候,我也什么都找不到。你在找关于新西兰的信息对吗?

    学生:对。

    工作人员:你找的是旅游信息吗?

    学生:不。事实上我找的是关于一座新西兰的火山。

    工作人员:噢,好。因为我知道一家旅行社,他们在组织新西兰和澳大利亚的旅游很在行。

    学生:噢,我很想去那儿。我听说那里很美。

    工作人员:对。

    学生:也许有一天会吧。

    工作人员:好。让我们来看看……好。如果你想查图书馆的存书,但不知道作者名字,或是不知道书或文章的标题,你就要设置一个关键词搜索。

    这是个特殊功能。然后你就可以输入一些关键词,让电脑自己搜索。

    学生:我明白了。

    工作人员:好,我们搜搜“火山”和“新西兰”怎么样?

    学生:听起来不错。

    工作人员:是为了地理课吗?

    学生:嗯。

    工作人员:你肯定是辛普森教授带的班里的。

    学生:不。

    工作人员:噢。他是个火山专家,所以我以为他教你的班。

    学生:不,不过,我听说他很棒。

    工作人员:对,大家都这么说。你知道火山的名字吗?

    学生:鲁阿佩火山。

    工作人员:你能拼出来吗?

    学生:当然。RUAPEHU。

    工作人员:好的。鲁阿佩火山。来看看吧。你是地理专业的?

    学生:不算是。

    工作人员:让我猜猜,你必须要上科学课,但你不想上生物、化学或物理。

    学生:对。但事实上这是个很有趣的课。

    工作人员:那挺好的。嗯……这必须是本书吗?你能用一篇期刊论文吗?

    学生:嗯……不,哪一种都可以。

    工作人员:好,这里有一篇期刊文章。让我检查一下,是否有...,有一篇文章,但它是2001年的。你觉得可以吗?

    学生:我想看看。关注的重点其实是在最近5年的火山爆发,但这也许能提供些有用的背景资料。

    工作人员:好。来看看我们还能不能找到别的东西。

    学生:听起来不错。

    Librarian: Hi. Can I help you?

    Student: Where do I go, besides the computers, to look for books on New Zealand?

    Librarian: OK. You mean you don’t want to use the computer?

    Student: Well, I haven’t had any luck on the computers here.

    Librarian: OK. I mean the reason I am asking is you pretty much have to go to the computer to find out where a book is. But I can help you find it on the computer if you like.

    选项分析

    前面的对话说了找书, 接着说spend half an hour on computer但是没找到。说明已经有电脑并且用了只是不会

    B 选项是对文章核心动词how to locate 的描述,是对全文主旨最准确的概括
