Library Usage Trends and Needs of International Students
Shaffer, Christopher; Vardaman, Lisa; Miller, Donna
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v29 n2 p109-117 2010
This paper seeks to discover international students' perceptions of academic libraries. Specifically, Troy University's library in the southeast corner of Alabama was studied. This university was chosen because of the researchers' familiarity with it. Troy University was also chosen because of its diverse student population. By discovering the needs of this population of students and comparing them to the needs of more traditional American students, it will be possible to better understand the distinct needs of international students in general.
