Answer:

First, the librarian should introduce themselves and create a conversational tone so the patron can become comfortable. Next, the librarian should give their full attention to listening to what the patron needs. Then, the librarian should ask open-ended questions to understand or narrow the patron's search needs. Finally, the librarian should conduct the research required to find the appropriate sources for the patron and offer these sources or referrals in a timely manner.
