Research Problem

This study aims to investigate the information-seeking behaviors of Chinese students at Canadian univesity libraries. Most existing research examined the information behaviors of Asian students within American libraries, but little accounted for Chinese students at Canadian university libraries. This research focuses on Chinese students' information-seeking habits and strategies in using Canadian academic libraries. This study is part of the general area research problems about information behaviors of diverse students. 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.
