Abstract

The migration from print to digital media for the storage, retrieval, and communication of all types of data has influenced the way people source for research materials. A questionnaire was administered to evaluate users' views of the use of libraries and online resources for research. Hypotheses tested using chi square to at the 0.05 level of significance revealed that there is no perceived significant difference in staff efficiency and ease of use of facilities in academic libraries and the online environment. However, there is a significant difference in users' perception of speed of access to needed research materials, availability of current materials, cost of access, and distractions within the facilities. Recommendations were made based on the research findings.
