Reference Interview is a comprehensive course focusing on the methods of evaluating reference service, behavioral aspects of reference service, and the different types of questions that can be used to help patrons identify what they need. Using images, audio, and video, this in-depth educational approach covers everything from the approachability of the librarian to how to follow up with a patron.
