The Daily Image Information Needs and Seeking Behavior of Chinese Undergraduate Students
Huang, Kun; Kelly, Diane
College & Research Libraries, v74 n3 p243-261 May 2013
A survey was conducted at Beijing Normal University to explore subjects' motives for image seeking; the image types they need; how and where they seek images; and the difficulties they encounter. The survey also explored subjects' attitudes toward current image services and their perceptions of how university libraries might provide assistance. Based on the findings, this article summarizes the features of Chinese undergraduate students' daily image needs and their information behavior related to images. The findings reveal the need to improve the image services offered by academic libraries and strengthen undergraduates' information literacy with respect to image search and use.
