The death of reference l.jpg

The Death of Reference

Reference statistics are down dramatically!

Reference transactions are less frequent, but questions are more complicated and take place in random environments.


The big question l.jpg

The Big Question

Do people know more today than about accessing and using information effectively and efficiently than they did ten years ago?

. . . Twenty years ago?


Slide5 l.jpg

Can’t we just Google it?

or Yahoo! it?

or Blog or Wiki it?


Librarians teach l.jpg

Librarians Teach!!!

We must consider our approach to reference with the same diligence we consider our classroom teaching.

Central to our mission as librarians is our role to promote, facilitate, and cultivate information literacy.


Teaching and learning l.jpg

Teaching and Learning

Therefore, one of the most promising ways to improve learning is to improve teaching.”

“The quality of student learning is directly, although not exclusively, related to the quality of teaching.

- Thomas Angelo

Collegial Conversations

Do you ever talk with colleagues after a reference or teaching session?

How does this affect your future sessions?

Do you ever talk with someone after providing assistance?

    Final thought l.jpg

    Final Thought

    Our best intentions will not improve statistics . . .

    Reference is about relationships . . .

    crafting an association with individuals that extends beyond desks and classrooms and walls.
