I don’t have to know the subject, but I am a good librarian, and I apply my searching skills and knowledge to the research process and it usually works out fine. And I learn something too” "When I'm at the reference desk I'm totally interruptible, I'm fair game. I'm not one of those librarians who can't work the circulation dcsk either." "I know how to search a database.....
If I can share that with a student and give them the resources, they're the ones who need to synthesize them and find out if they'r relevant or not." A Prezi by
