Work Day 4
This is my fourth day on the job and I feel a little better about my situation. I had checked out the book "Conducting the Reference Interview" by Catherine Ross and was talking about looking through that, however my supervisor said that it would be a little bit more in depth than what I'd be doing at the desk. He told me when he first started as a reference librarian, his supervisor at the time did not feel the need to bombard him loads of literature on doing reference. He said she just put him at the desk and told him to do reference. Of course, she would correct him when he was wrong. So, basically the same will apply to me. Its nice to not have to come in and not be expected to be a reference librarian. I feel slightly less stupid.
