The types of reference question considered most difficult by the staffs of Northern California public library systems were the subject of a workshop conducted by the Bay Area Reference Center (BARC). The topics included: antiques and collectibles; identifying a poem from its middle line; how to make practically anything; how to repair various objects; finding business information; remodeling and repairing automobiles, trucks, and tractors; and using government documents to answer reference questions. Each BARC staff member took one problem area, compiled a bibliography, and prepared a short talk on the topic. Discussions concerning written library reference policies were conducted. Transcripts of the talks, the bibliographies, and a summary of the discussions are included in this report. (Author/PF)
