A Reference for That: “What are We Stopping?” And “What is Shifting?”

Nicolette Warisse Sosulski, David A. Tyckoson


Dave Tyckoson, and Nicolette Warisse Sosulski met because Sara Kelly Johns, a mutual friend, told them “you have to meet each other! I don’t know that I know anybody else as obsessed by reference [as you are]!” They friended on Facebook in October 2011 and have been chatting, sharing, and sometimes debating about reference ever since. Dave has had a notable career in academic reference, has written extensively on the reference interview, chaired the committee that developed the RUSA behavioral guidelines, and was the recipient of the 2005 Isadore Gilbert Mudge-R.R. Bowker Award for reference excellence. His most recent contribution to reference literature was the editing of Reimagining Reference in the 21st Century. Dave has been a reference librarian for thirty-eight years—and expects that number to grow.
