Question:

What is a reference interview?

Inactive
Kelsea C.
Answer:

A reference interview is the conversation between a patron and a librarian to completely grasp what the patron is trying to research. The interview starts with the patron request, the librarian listens and paraphrases what they think the patron is looking for and asks for confirmation that they are understanding what the patron wants. This goes deeper in that the librarian may realize they want/need additional information that they didn't know they needed. An example: patron: "I'm looking for a guide to fishing." Librarian: "Okay, you are looking for a guide as to how to fish? Would you also like information about fishing in your local area, or maybe deep sea fishing?" Patron: "Yes, actually. I'd like to know more information about deep sea fishing." Librarian: "Okay, I will find a guide to deep sea fishing and what permits you will need."

Answer:

Psychological criticism is the concept of viewing and understanding literature using psychological theories and methodologies. For instance, you can use Freud's theory of id, ego, and superego to analyze a book, such as Wuthering Heights. One could argue that Heathcliff was the id, Cath was the ego, and Edgar was the superego.
