What is the difference between readers' advisory and a reference interview?
Readers' advisory is a special service in which the librarian tries to get a general idea of the types of books and/or subjects the reader enjoys, and then connects the reader to materials that match those interests. A reference interview is the process of determining the information needs of the library patron, oftentimes in the form of a conversation at the reference desk. The aim of the interview is to translate the patron’s questions into one that can be answered with the library’s resources.
