SAGE Report Studies Librarian and Student Perspectives on Undergraduate Research
Technology From SAGE shared the results of a survey of nearly 600 students in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada in a new report, “The Knowledge Gap Between Librarians and Students: Contrasting Librarian and Student Perspectives on the Undergraduate Workflow” (registration required). It “sheds light on challenges in the librarian-patron relationship, including the need for greater digital literacy and more tailored support for students, and recommends methods to support the student experience.”
Findings include the following:
- 35 percent of students have used the library website.
- 63 percent use Google to conduct research while 10 percent try the library first.
- Only 27 percent have entered the library building itself.
