This subject introduces students to information work in libraries and to the underlying philosophy of reference service. It examines the major information sources and services used and developed by librarians to answer information requests. The concept of search strategies is introduced for both electronic and manual searching. The role and dynamics of reference interviews and their role in the larger reference process is studied. A variety of search strategies is examined and evaluated.
