Dear chief of editor

Library Philosophy and Practice

We submit article entitle The impact of repository service quality toward final year students’ interests to access research record service for published in Library Philosophy and Practice. All authors agreed to publish in this journal and equally contribute to this study. This paper is not recognized for publication in another journal and submitted for Library Philosophy and Practice only. We hope you accept our article for publish because this study focuses to reveal the impact of repository service quality on student motivation in using research services at the State Islamic Institute (IAIN) Purwokerto. This study found that Attitude toward_Behavior (AtB) highly influenced students to visit library research services—both online and offline.

What this study adds:

  • This study found that Attitude toward_Behavior (AtB) brings two other variables, namely Library_as Place (LaP) and Information Control (IC), which have an indirect effect on student visiting interest.
  • This research also prove that Information Control (IC) affects student visiting interest through Perceived Behavior Control, but the influence of PBC is not greater than that of Attitude toward_Behavior (AtB).
  • This study concluded that to improve Behavioral Intention and the quality of repository services, it is necessary to improve Attitude toward Behavior as a connecting variable.

Thank you,

AtB brings two other variables, namely Library_as Place (LaP) and Information Control (IC), which have an indirect effect on student visiting interest. Thus, activities that should be prioritized to increase student visits to research services in the library were identified.
