Sample text

Ross and Dewdney (1998) refer to these as counter-strategies ( p. 157), and they include returning to the reference desk, refusing to accept a referral elsewhere, playing dumb, refusing to accept the answer provided, keeping the process going by talking, proposing a diVerent course of action, or starting the process again with another librarian. Informationseekers in the public library are, it seems, quite persistent and are able to readily recognize when their interests are not being served. Taking all the poor practices noted above into account, one of the more serious implications of the Ross and Dewdney research is that the reference interview, long advocated as the backbone of good reference service, may have been in danger of falling into disuse by the mid-1990s and perhaps even still.

Examples included causing the reader to see a new perspective, providing a role model for identity, giving courage to make a change, or facilitating a greater understanding of the world (as in the case of reading Freedom at Midnight, a fictional account of the partition of India). Ross’s research demonstrates that, in addition to being entertained, fictional works can indeed be informing for the reader. Moreover, reading for pleasure is not solely confined to fiction, as Shearer (2004) and Ross (2004) both stress.

Librarians also questioned whether it should be their responsibility to teach about word processing and e-mail. However, public librarians cannot completely ignore the fact that a number of patrons have diYculties with technology because, in the end, these diYculties do limit information-seeking by discouraging the independent self-help that many patrons desire. Librarians have a vested interest in encouraging patrons to become more self-suYcient with respect to information technologies. It would not be possible nor desirable for librarians to interact with every patron, particularly for informationseeking activities which are relatively straightforward, such as looking up the call number for a specific book.
