  • Mô tả: Describes the results of an investigation on the information gathering behaviour of arts scholars in Sri Lanka's universities. The method involves a questionnaire to collect both qualitative and quantitative data and descriptive statistical methods were applied in the analysis of data. The overall response rate was around 70 per cent and each university was considered as a cluster. Arts scholars gather information for three basic types of activities; teaching, research and administration. The respondents spend 45-55 per cent of their time in the library and the majority ranked "to keep up with current developments" as the main reason for seeking information. In comparison to scientists, arts scholars appear to use publishers' catalogues as the most important source for new developments in their relevant fields. Many do not use index card files or outside assistance in searching literature.
