Abstract

Individuals communicate through a shared body of cultural knowledge or a common vocabulary. The cultural literacy of American students has recently come under intense scrutiny. The extent and depth of cultural literacy possessed by reference librarians are a major determinant in the quality of patron-librarian interaction. Further, reference sources can play an important role in the acquisition and enhancement of the cultural literacy of both librarians and patrons.
