The article focuses on the ethnographic study conducted at the University of Rochester's Rush Rhees Library in Rochester, New York. The librarians wanted to know what students do from morning to night, how they approach their academic work and how they interact with libraries and librarians within the context of their studies. The ethnographic methods of research are detailed.
