The Face Value in Reference Work.
Wilson, Patrick
RQ, v25 n4 p468-75 Sum 1986
Examines possible rules governing reference interviews: needs rule, wants rule, face value rule, and clarification rule. Face value rule is defended as a legitimate expression of one conception of the reference librarian's professional role, implying a restricted view of librarians' responsibility for outcome of reference inquiries.
