Example text

Is reading fiction really just another form of information-seeking? The answer to that question is complex, perhaps even more complex than we might imagine. In a study of 194 adults who read extensively for pleasure, Catherine Ross (2000; 1999) has explored this question in some detail. She found that even though readers of narrative stories often stated that they read merely to be entertained, further probing revealed that a certain book or books had made a diVerence to their lives in major ways.

Knowledge of this fact could make a great deal of diVerence to the success of the transaction (such as in the case of material needed for a child rather than another adult). Finally, Pamela McKenzie (2003a) has raised the issue that very often, patrons must deal with more than one staV member while seeking information, and this may work against a successful outcome. DiYculties with multiple staV encounters include requiring the user to explain the query multiple times, chatting between the staV members while ignoring 30 G.

Dealing with the vagaries of the public’s information queries, then, is seen as both a professional duty and challenge. B. More on the Reference Transaction Undoubtedly the single largest area of professional literature that deals with the specific elements of providing reference services is that devoted to reference transactions and the reference interview. An excellent summary of the reference transaction literature was provided in a previous review by John Richardson (2002), and we do not intend to replicate that here.
