Undergraduate Information Resource Choices

David H. Mill

Abstract

This study provides a thorough overview of information consumption at a modest-sized liberal arts college. It is based on a citation analysis of an extensive sample of bibliographies drawn from papers written for 64 intermediate and advanced courses. The papers, representing 17 academic departments, were written during the 2004–05 academic year. The citations were analyzed by type of resource, and for books and journals, local ownership and age information was noted. The format (electronic or print) of locally available journals was also recorded. Both divisional and overall results are presented, and statistically significant results are noted.
