Libraries help researchers save time, says new report

Libraries help researchers save time, says new reportUniversity libraries are saving academics time by helping them find quality material more quickly, says a new report. Academics are choosing the library as their first choice for getting hold of scholarly material because access is quick, it helps them make new connections to related information and the library may be the only place they can access that material. Academics are then using their reading to inspire new thinking and improve their research results. This picture of the library at the heart of university life has emerged as part of a new JISC Collections1 report which canvassed over 1000 academic and associate staff at six UK universities in 2011
