Users' expectations of libraries are changing as they find and obtain more information directly from the Web. To better understand how usage patterns are changing, the Digital Library Federation (DLF) and Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) commissioned Outsell, Inc., to conduct a large-scale study of undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members from a wide range of academic institutions.

This report includes 158 of the 659 data tables, a few summary observations, and a brief discussion of some possible implications of the findings. To view all 659 tables, click here. CLIR will deposit the raw data tapes with the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).

IMPORTANT: Tables that are referenced throughout the report are currently available only in PDF format. To view them, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer and allow Javascript to execute.
