With an overview of the most popular reference formats and their uses, this session will help staff connect the right resource to the right questions at the reference desk.

Learning objectives for this session include:

  • Identifying resources in various formats to conduct research and reference inquiries.
  • Helping users evaluate the quality, currency, and authority of information retrieved

Session Duration:
This course consists of one 2-hour session.
