Reference Reflections

We are just finishing up a Reference Week where I work. It's been a wonderful week of getting back to the basics of Reference Service and a great opportunity to find out what's new and what's changed in the world of reference. In this world of fast-changing products and services, I  recommend that all take a moment to think about the basics, as well as the best way to serve our patrons. It helps us remember why we wanted to join this profession and can help reignite our passions. This also comes at a time when major conferences are about to occur (CLA, ALA), another excellent means to reignite passions.

As a complete aside, take a look at this article from the New York Times about the US government considering the possibility of Website Companies keeping web use statistics.
