Helping a library patron with a 4-part reference question relating to Anne Rice, Egypt during Biblical times, and the missionary named Albert Shelton

Picture of Helping a library patron with a 4-part reference question relating to Anne Rice, Egypt during Biblical times, and the missionary named Albert Shelton
Over the period of the reference interview, the patron asks the following questions:

  • I just finished reading Anne Rice's book, Christ the Lord, and would like some book reviews of it, especially from the New York Times. Can you help me?
    • I am also interested in reading more about Egypt during Biblical times. Do you have any books (maybe 3 or 4) in your library or that I could interlibrary loan?
    • Oh, and also my brother would like me to confirm that Albert Shelton, a missionary who went to Tibet, was born in Indiana. Where can I find that?
    • I am also looking for the vampire series she wrote and would like to read them. Can you give me a list of that series?

Step 1: For the first part of this patron's questions, let's use the database, Book Review Digest Retrospective, to find some reviews.

Once logged in to the Book Review Digest Retrospective database, let's search "rice" as "Author, Personal" and "christ the lord" as "Title".

This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!
