When designing a reference service point, there are numerous issues to explore. The author covers some of them here: a review of the counter-desk debate; research on personal space applied to both patrons and professionals; the need for ergonomically correct positioning; and the Americans with Disabilities Act. In conclusion, the author offers a reference service point design for consideration.
