A CASE STUDY OF ANAMBRA STATE UNIVERSITY, ULI. CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION Background to the study Reference service is one of the essential services of the library. Meaning reference service is the activities, roles, functions and services. The aim of this book is to discuss two core aspects of academic librarianship: library reference services and information literacy.

The book traces the history of these areas of service, the relationship between them, and the way in which libraries in academic institutions are performing these roles/services in a rapidly changing arena. THE PROBLEMS AND PROSPECT OF REFERENCE SERVICES IN ACADEMIC LIBRARIES ABSTRACT This project is aimed at examining the problems and prospects of reference services in academic librarians, using the Anambra State University Uli campus library as a case study and how to evaluate the strength and weakness of the reference services in an academic librarian.

A staffed and knowledgeable reference desk is an essential part of a library. The services that are provided at a reference desk may vary depending on the type of library, its purpose, its resources, and its staff.

History. Reference services did not become commonplace in. This book examines the questions: how academic libraries provide value-added reference and information services in the digital age. It provides best practices from a global perspective.

The book starts by looking at the information needs and info-seeking behaviours of university students and faculty. The book The Human Side of Reference and Information Services in Academic Libraries: Adding value in the digital world discusses the impact of technology on different aspects of reference services.

The book consists of seven chapters written by librarians of California State University at Long Beach and edited by a professor.

In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and 5/5(1). In Part II, Information Sources and Their Use, discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries.A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their.

In today’s complex societies, access to information can be found more easily by using a reference book. The importance of reference materials cannot be overemphasized in an academic environment.

Use reference books (also called reference or background sources, or resources) to get quick specific facts or information or an overview of a subject.

Some examples of reference sources are: dictionaries, encyclopedias, bibliographies, almanacs, directories, atlases, and handbooks.

These can be online or in print. Reference service deals with disseminating the function of libraries.
