Not on the Same Page: Undergraduates' Information Retrieval in Electronic and Print BooksJournal of Academic Librarianship
AbstractAcademic libraries are increasingly collecting e-books, but little research has investigated how students use e-books compared to print texts. This study used a prompted think-aloud method to gain an understanding of the information retrieval behavior of students in both formats. Qualitative analysis identified themes that will inform instruction and collection practices.
