The Tradition of Reference Service in the Liberal Arts College Library.
Miller, Richard E.
RQ, v25 n4 p460-67 Sum 1986
Discusses gradual emergence of reference service in today's liberal arts college libraries through a century of changes in the liberal arts curriculum, in teaching methods, faculty attitudes toward librarians, library facilities, and research tools. The relatively recent acceptance of reference service has obscured difficulties early proponents had to overcome. (Author/MBR)
