Interview to interaction: towards a terminology of equality in reference work (editorial)
By Francis, Mary (11, 2006).

Reference service in librarianship has historically been tied to the reference interview as predominant teaching model. Successful reference encounters involve the mutual respect of both parties as they work towards a common goal. While there are positive traits associated with the reference interview, the term also possesses negative connotations which can influence the contact between librarians and patrons. In an effort to help develop respectful relationships, the author suggests a reclassification of the reference interview as a reference interaction.
