A Reference Librarian’s Job Description

Reference Desk“Wait for the next question, whatever it might be. Then do whatever you can to answer it.”

That’s the job description of people who work at Murphy Library’s reference desk.
OK, maybe their real job description is more complex, but when they go to work at the reference desk, they leave everything else behind and focus only on answering YOUR questions. They might look like they’re busy at the computer or they might be talking among themselves – but they’re just passing time, waiting for you to ask a question.
You can contact them either by going to the reference desk in person (here’s where it is) or by emailingrefemail@uwlax.edu, by chat at the library home page, and other options described at the Reference Services web page.
