    Reference Staff Can Help By:

    • Suggesting specific CFCC reference books—as well as any special searching strategies for their indexes—which might contain answers to a particular question
    • Teaching use of the catalog, including its advanced features, or recommending alternative search terms—especially Library of Congress subject headings
    • Compiling a list of books on a particular subject or by a particular author
    • Taking the user directly to the shelves for browsing, or finding an item that isn’t where it’s supposed to be
    • Helping with selection of the best CFCC subscription databases for a particular project or paper and access tips from on or off-campus
    • Placing an item “request,” which prevents the current borrower from renewing the item and notifies the next borrower as soon as the item is returned
    • Requesting an interlibrary loan of books or journal articles from other cooperating libraries anywhere in the world
    • Recommending reliable web sites and giving advice about evaluating the reliability of the information on the open Internet
