OCLC white paper on the information habits of college students

Concentrating on the Web-based information habits of college students, particularly their use of campus library Web sites, this study finds that college and university students look to campus libraries and library websites for their information needs and value access to accurate, up-to-date information with easily identifiable authors. They are aware of the shortcomings of information available from the Web and of their needs for assistance in finding information in electronic or paper formats.
