Survey Says: Sources Students Use in Typical Research Assignment

How Teen Do Research in the Digital World. (Pew Internet and American Life Project, 11/1/2012)

Search for information via BadgerLink? Not likely to do so

Ask for help at the reference desk? Slightly less inclined to do so.

Use a print reference collection? Might as well clear the shelves, as Middleton did a few years ago. (After weeding, they moved a much smaller collection to a less prominent location, on the same range of shelving with back issues of magazines.)

The question I have: Do students still wait to do their research until the day before the assignment is due?
