BUSE Library Reference & Information Services


Reference service is any assistance provided by library staff to library patrons seeking information to help them find the information they need. Professional librarians can help library patrons find particular information, suggest sources on a topic, help with search terms, or help in any other way to find what clients need and learn more about how to find information.

Need help in finding a book, journal article, searching a database, or starting a research paper, the Reference Librarian is there at your service.

The library also offers e-reference services by placing answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) on the library’s website, a web form for library patrons to ask reference questions, an e-mail address, and real time assistance using live chat, Facebook, skype or WhatsApp.
