James I Wyer

James I Wyer proposed three theories of reference service i.e conservative, moderate and liberal in 1930. Conservative includes giving occasional personal assistance to the inexperienced and bewildered reader. The moderate reference service goes beyond providing mere instruction to actually helping the reader in using the book or finding the document and facts, etc. The liberal includes the provision of the full and direct supply of reliable information to the readers.
