Question:

What are the steps in creating a successful Reference Interview?

Inactive
Brandon W.
Answer:

A reference interview is important because it is a collaborative effort between the librarian and the patron, in which the patron seeks to understand his/her information. In order to collaborate, the librarian must understand the patrons information needs. Therefore, the librarian will then embark on the seven steps of the reference interview. Step 1: Approachability- online this would require a friendly greeting. Step 2: Interest - Make comments that show the patron that they have your attention and maintain a comfortable tone. Step 3: Listening - Paraphrase and repeat back what the patron has told you and ask any clarifying questions. Step 4: Interviewing- Ask open-ended questions and verify any specific questions the patron may have asked. Step 5: Searching- Keep the patron informed on the progress of the search. When searching electronic databases, start broad and depending on the patron (i.e., graduate student), become more specific. Step 6: Answering- Speak concisely and clearly, cite any sources, check to make sure the patron understands the information and that you have provided the information needed. Further, be sure that the patron can access the information that you have helped them acquire. Finally, Step 7: Follow-Up - Ask the patron if you may be of any further assistance.

What is the four corners rule in contract law?

Answer:

The "four corners" rule in contract law is the principle that a document's meaning can be derived from the document itself. That is, the document stands alone, without reference to anything outside of the document (extrinsic evidence), i.e., potential circumstances surrounding the signing of the document. This is also known as the patrol evidence rule.
