What questions should an information professional or librarian ask of a patron seeking general reference assistance?
First, I would ask the patron what type of material they are seeking: book, journal article, newspaper article, or other format. Do they just want basic information and an answer to their question or do they want something that goes into more detail or more in depth. Once it is determined exactly what the patron is seeking, access the resources that can assist the patron providing them with 3-4 options to choose from. Allow the patron to review the items and then determine if further assistance is needed.
