Not to worry.  My mother's a librarian (and a cataloguer, yet!).  If the 
librarians' agents come and Get you, I'm fairly sure I can get her to call 
them off.  (Cataloguers, you understand, being of a higher order within the 
heirarchy of the Privy Order.)

However, I don't believe you need to worry.  Correct and intelligent usage 
of public-domain librarian information such as you describe is more likely 
to admit you to the outer circles of the Privy Order, as it saves those who 
do the Real Work time and trouble.
