Dan Karr

Dan Karr has been a CEO or Vice President for high-technology companies for over 20 years. While working as a Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales for a technology company, Dan was seriously injured while commuting to work. After dealing with trying to get insurance companies to pay his significant medical bills, or to settle a claim so Dan could pay the medical bills, he became intimately aware of the complexity of insurance claims. Dan founded ValChoice to pay forward his experience by bringing consumers, insurance agents and financial advisors easy-to-understand analysis needed to know which insurance companies provide the best price, protection -- claims handling -- and service.

The Reference Interview

At the heart of reference services is the reference interview, a consultation between staff and patrons that matches information to a need. This tutorial will help you recommend sources and help patrons interpret, evaluate, and use information to meet their needs.
