Student experiences with media resources: Results of an academic media center student patron survey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article presents the results of a survey designed to assess students' experiences with media resources as a means to better understanding academic media center student patron needs and as a first step towards assessing student levels of media literacy, an important but often overlooked component of information literacy. Results indicate a wide range of expertise with critical evaluation of media resources and suggest the need for better communication between instructors and students regarding familiarity with and appropriateness of media resource usage. Implications for library instruction are also addressed.
