    TOEFL Listening Comprehension Transcript

    Narrator
    Listen to a conversation between two students at the library.

    Joan: Excuse me....

    Larry: Yes?

    J: Sorry, but could I bother your for just a minute? I think I left a book in this carrel last night. Could you just take a look in the shelf for me?

    L: Sure. What''s the title?

    J: Uh..."Fundamentals of Bioengineering" or something like that- I forget the exact title. (laughs) That''s why I need it! It''s a sort of green paperback.

    L: Huh. Looks like a couple of other folks''ve left their books in here, too. Why don''t they put them back where they got them when they''re through, anyway?

    J: Probably just forgot, like me. It''s easy to forget a book in there after you''ve been sitting here going through books for three or four hours at night.

    L: Yeah, I guess. I''ve done that, too. (laughs) How about, um, "Engineering Basics"? Is this it? It''s not green, though. It''s kind of, uh, turquoise?

    J: Huh! That''s kind of eerie, isn''t it? That''s really pretty close. No, not mine. Nothing else there?

    L: Nope. Just a couple of works on Anglo-Saxon grammar. Want those?

    J: (laughs) I don''t think so! I probably need one on English grammar, though. My paper on GM is not organized very well.

    L: GM? General Motors?

    J: (laughs) No. Gene modification. It''s due next Tuesday and I''m barely half-finished. And I need that book to check the pagination- I''m including some quotes out of it.

    L: Well, sorry I can''t help- it''s just not here. Did you check the stacks?

    J: Yeah, ''cause I thought at first I''d put it back. But it''s not where it''s supposed to be, at least.

    L: Maybe somebody else''s got it then. Somebody from your class maybe?

    J: Yeah, maybe. We''ve all got papers due.

    L: Did you check at the desk? They can tell you if it''s been checked out.

    J: No- it can''t be checked out. Our prof put it on reserve until the end of the term. Too many people might need to use it.

    L: And there''s only one copy? That''s pretty rough.

    J: Yup, I think so. Or... no- actually, I have no idea. I just presumed there was. I''ll go check the catalogue!

    L: Yeah- there might be another one in the Science Reading Room or the Medical Library. You know the author?

    J: Uh.... Jamison, or um, Jamiston. Why?

    L: Because I can search it for you right now- Google Scholar.

    J: Huh?

    L: Yeah, haven''t your heard? University Libraries has linked up with Google''s search of library holdings all over the world

    J: Wow!

    L: Just a sec. Jamison?....And the title''s something about bioengineering, so keyword ''bioengineering''... and- voila! "Jamison, H.J., Fundamental Concepts of Bioengineering"- is that it?

    J: Oh, yes! Great!

    L: And...lessee... Tennyson University....yes, here we are: Main Library- and Medical Research Library! They''ve got a copy there, too, it says.

    J: That is really great! Thanks so much for your help. I''m sorry I took up so much of your time. I really appreciate this.

    L: My pleasure. It''s my major.

    J: Huh?

    L: Library Science. You just gave me a little practicum

    J: (laughs) Well, glad to help, then. I''ve got to go! The Medical Library closes for the weekend Saturday afternoon.

    L: Better run, then!

    J: Thanks again! ''Bye.

    L: Good luck!
