There’s some confusion about how the Reference Departmental Card should be used. Please take a look at the guidelines found on the intranet. Of particular note:
All circulating materials borrowed for reference staff use in answering reference questions are held for and checked out to the reference departmental card. This card may also be used when requesting circulating materials from the Service Center’s Professional Collection.
The key words here are answering reference questions, so this card shouldn’t be used for book discussions, programming, or anything else.
