Why You Should Read the Papers: Improving Reference Service in Public Libraries.
Dilevko, Juris; Mason, Moya
Public Libraries, v39 n2 p85-87,90-92,94-97 Mar-Apr 2000
Examines whether library reference staff are cognizant of newspapers as a potential source of reference information, and explores what happens when library staff members make referrals--often a sign that they do not know the answer to the question themselves. Discusses results of a recent study of public libraries in Canada which revealed that reference staff are not making good use of this source. (Contains 17 references.) (AEF)
