Abstract

abstract:

This paper investigated how libraries can support the transition of first-year international undergraduate students to a large research university. The research explored the students' use of libraries, their use of information to learn, and their academic and information literacy learning needs. The methods were a survey (with 135 responses) and three semi-structured interviews. Libraries should focus on basic information for these students, such as the locations of physical spaces; should develop teaching and learning rather than marketing strategies; and should work to integrate the library holistically into programs and courses for international students.
