SO. I've been thinking about this for a cpuole of months and I hope it isn't too late or too circuitous a path to say all this.The main thing reference class did for me in library school and I think I had the same one you did, just a few years later was give me some strategies for managing the transition to open web resources as satisficing sources. I don't think the course was designed that way, but that was the effect. You can't really prepare students for the next 5 years, all you can do is ground them in what is and what has been and give them the confidence to go forward.Today's big trends in libraries are all about our waning relationship to print. I'll probably change my mind about this statement tomorrow, and we don't know that it's a transition yet, there are definitely trends: academic libraries can't afford journals and the public libraries are limited in the purchase and use of ebooks in so many ways, I cry. Can a reference course prepare a new librarian for this? Well someone oughta. Give them confidence in themselves as librarians. You give students a sense of the history of it all (the oed! britannica! wikipedia!), teach some techniques for doing it (reference interview, evaluating sources, collection development for reference, being welcoming to all patrons for $200 alex), and give them some opportunity to practice (your local statewide chat reference service, practice questions, IPL, internships, all that stuff).You don't have to focus too much on thinking about hot technologies and services because they won't matter. Sure, virtual reference pays my gourmet grocery store bills, but it is not really about the technology. It is about people inviting libraries into their lives to help with search. I'll change my mind about that tomorrow too. But I don't think your goal should be to churn out reference librarians. It is to give librarians the confidence that they can do reference and therefore anything else, too.Maybe this is helpful!Another take: the state of the art is to, literally or figuratively, swivel your head on your neck, make eye contact with people, and ask them what you can do to help.
