Information seekers interact daily with library staff to meet their information needs. Do you have the necessary customer skills it takes to engage in successful interactions with your patrons? This course helps reference staff identify necessary skill sets needed for any reference interaction whether it is face to face, virtual or on the telephone. Additionally, you will learn how to recognize common barriers to productive reference interactions, develop techniques to overcome them and discover how to display exemplar service to anyone visiting your library, face-to-face or virtually.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the skills utilized in providing service to your patrons
  • Recognize how to demonstrate customer service skills to your patrons
  • Define barriers to patron interactions with librarians and staff
