In the past library professionals have primarily collected and provided access to materials; however, this paper will argue that we must now go beyond access or "Beyond the Book. " One way to do this is to learn about the information search process and then assume a new and more assertive role as a "research advisor. " We need to change our patrons 'expectations so that they see us as knowledgeable about sources, yes, but also as experts on effective research as a process of discovery. Three relevant information search process models are covered, as well as the way people vary in their learning styles and thus approaches to research.
