Buyer beware project

BUYER BEWARE PROJECT

  • Choose twelve of the reference questions from the attached page.

  • Approach any reference desk at the Main Library of the ***** Public Library (except the children’s room). You can ask the questions all in one visit or during several visits. Try to get helped by different librarians. The questions in bold could also be asked over the phone or via email, but at least three of your questions need to be done in person.

  • DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES “blow your cover” and state that you are a “secret shopper.”

  • For each question, you will need to:

    • do the behavior checklist

    • write a short account

    • answer the questionnaire
