Ohio State University and OCLC researchers to study how people use electronic information resources

Researchers at Ohio State University and OCLC are conducting a new study to find out how and why students and faculty members use electronic information sources to do research and solve problems.

The $1 million project is a collaboration between Ohio State and OCLC. The two-year study will run through Dec. 31, 2005. The project will be partially funded with a $480,543 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The remainder of the funding will come from Ohio State and OCLC.
