If you’re new to reference or curious about it, this webinar is for you! We will cover essentials that will help you feel comfortable providing high-quality service, regardless of what type of library you work in – public, academic, school or special. Topics include:
• Standards and decorum
• The reference interview
• Ethics of reference services
• And more!
