Newton, Daniel – Public Services Quarterly, 2011
College students have a tendency to become stressed from both their schoolwork and their personal lives. As the end of a semester approaches, the stress levels begin to rise for everyone. The procrastinators, the planners, and even those ahead in their work become tenser even with small problems, such as slow printers or an unavailable book needed…

Tumbleson, Beth E.; Burke, John J. – Public Services Quarterly, 2010
Information literacy instruction is provided in five formats: reference, one-shot sessions, credit courses, library Web sites, and embedded librarians.

Grozanick, Sara E. – Public Services Quarterly, 2010
There has been debate about the extent to which open access affects the quality of scholarly work. At the same time, researchers have begun to look for ways to evaluate the quality of open access publications.
