One New Thing: Reference interviews will work much better when both parties know what is being discussed…

I’m sure I’m not the only librarian who begins a reference interview, then after a few false starts is handed an assignment outline as a way to try and better work out what the person is looking for. Problem is I personally have only studied a few disciplines, and even first year assignments in some things have concepts in them that are beyond my understanding, as well as being new to the students in question.

And I thought students in the health sciences were tricky with their questions about medical terms I just couldn’t spell!
