Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



Newspapers remain an important research source, as well as a means of recreation and a source of current news. A study of newspaper use by students in the Faculty of Managment Science and the Faculty of Agriculture at Delta State University, Anwai Campus, used a questionnaire and records of newspaper requests in the library to discover student preferences and their reasons for preferring particular titles. The results show a high rate of use, and a general preference for information in their disciplines and unbiased reporting.
