Good on your staff for doing what they can to help people!  I don't understand how a profession that says it will help people, and requires (usually) a master's degree to get an entry level job can then turn around and say "Don't proof-read papers for people who don't have your level of education!  Don't help someone get a job by critiquing their resume!  Don't give simple tax advice to someone who just needs a 1040-EZ!  You don't have the education.
If you don't have the education to do that, you shouldn't be at a reference desk.
