Know It All, Find It Fast by Heather Dawson claims to be aimed specifically at information professionals working in a reference capacity within an academic library.

It does not profess to give all the answers to potential questions and it assumes that any employee already has a basic knowledge of the policies and management of their own individual establishment. However, it does offer a “Survival guide to front‐line staff” when covering the trickier enquiry that may come their way.
