I have already written an overview on the reference interview, and on search strategies. This blog post is about reference work specifically as it may apply to reference staff in law libraries. Of course, there are different kinds of law libraries with different demographics. Law firm libraries serve the lawyers working at the firm. Law school libraries assist law students and faculty. Courthouse libraries serve the public. With different types of clientele, various law libraries presumably will haved ifferent approaches to serving their clients.
