McCarthy, Sandra Calemme
Community College Enterprise, v23 n2 p27-31 Fall 2017
The purpose of this study is to extend what is known about the influence of library usage on student success. Studies show that students who use library resources tend to perform better in college. This study focuses on the relationship between library usage and success rates among online students. The results of this study showed that online learners who accessed library resources remotely received a grade that was almost 15 percentage points higher than their counterparts who did not access library resources remotely. This research contributes to the literature that suggests that usage of library resources has a positive impact on student success.
