Call for participation into research on 'Why our users love their library'

Contrary to many predictions and despite the growing importance of digital collections, SCONUL statistics demonstrate that the use of physical library space is growing rather than declining. To gain a better understanding of this growth, SCONUL is undertaking a study of the drivers of library usage to both guide service delivery and to produce advocacy material.
