The goal of this study is to explore the information-seeking behaviors of Chinese students at Canadian academic libraries. In-depth qualitative interviews with 20 Chinese students at University of Alberta are conducted to investigate Chinese students' information-seeking habits and strategies in using Canadian university libraries. It is hoped that this study will lead to a better understanding of the information needs of international students and help Canadian academic libraries to provide effective information support to multicultural students.
