 Reference Section-Staff Activity Area of library building in library management

Reference activity is one of the most important activities of a library and very often it is the precursor of documentation and information activity.A Reference librarian not only needs to consult the reference collection of the library, but he has also to consult the public catalogue to answer the readers queries. Reference librarian is located in close proximity of the reference collection. For a more active reference service, the reference librarian should regularly scan contents of current periodicals and maintain a file of pertinent information gathered. He needs  suitable equipment to file  these records. Small card cabinet or Rollodex may be kept handy by the reference librarian.
