Proactive chat in research databases: Inviting new and different questions
This study analyzes over 4500 chat interactions to understand how proactivity and research context affect use of proactive chat. Quantitative and qualitative analyses show patrons ask questions that are both more complex and more likely to relate to a research need when proactively approached in research databases. The availability of proactive chat in databases results in a greater frequency and greater proportion of research related questions. Results suggest that proactive chat in databases represents an important area for expanding library reference services. (Source: The Journal of Academic Librarianship)

Library and learning experiences turned mobile: A comparative study between LIS and non-LIS students
This study was set up to examine two groups of students (namely: LIS versus non-LIS students) at Peking University – their attitudes and level of activeness in adopting mobile technology in their daily life, as well as in their learning practices. Quantitative questionnaire survey was used for data collection, and a total number of 319 responses (i.e., LIS, 63 and non-LIS, 256) were collected from this study. Findings of this study reveal that no significant differences were found between the two student groups (LIS versus non-LIS) in many areas. In fact, both LIS and non-LIS student groups were using their smartphon...

LibQual+® as a predictor of library success: Extracting new meaning through structured equation modeling
This study aims at adopting LibQUAL+ as a measurement tool to predict library users' intention to patronize the library more in future. A theoretical model is presented to measure the relationships among the three LibQUAL+ service dimensions and the overall library user satisfaction. We estimate the effects of the three service dimensions on two indicators of students' attitudes and beliefs (Overall Satisfaction and Perceived Academic Success) and, in turn, the effects of those two variables on students' anticipated library use. We tested the research model using structural equation modeling. Our study results reveal that ...

This project challenges the untested assumption that the physical library itself serves no useful function to its users unless they are actively consulting books from the shelves.

Implementing a just-in-time collection development model in an academic library
This article describes the development of a system for changing a university library's collection development strategy from the traditional “just in case” model to a “just in time” approach. The reasons for such a change included a desire to be more responsive to user requirements, a need to be more flexible in acquiring interdisciplinary resources and new formats, and a substantial cut in the library's budget. The Collection Development librarians envisioned the collections as a service, using a simpler and more versatile accounting structure. The Access-Based Collection Development (ABCD) model em...
