Frequently Asked Questions at CHI’s Reference Services

Frequently asked questions (FAQ) are something every reference department has encountered. Patrons ask the same question (or a variation of it) over and over. In order to maintain consistency in responses and also to avoid having different reference personnel research the same topic again, reference departments develop Frequently Asked Question lists (FAQ).

Following are the frequently asked questions of the Concordia Historical Institute Reference Department. Some will have links to CHI web pages, while others will be in the FAQ file at CHI.
