From Electronic Library to a Learning Center in the Academic Library: Integrating Traditional and New Uses in the Library Workstation
Shoham, Snunith; Roitberg N.
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v31 n4 p339-346 Jul 2005
Questionnaires and computerized observations were used to measure purposes for visiting the academic library and uses made on its workstations. The research was done among 1004 users in Israel. The findings show that non-library uses are the major activity on academic library workstations and that libraries with large number of workstations are more exposed to this trend. It appears that non-library uses support learning.
