Library Anxiety

In a 1986 survey, researchers found that 75 to 85% of students surveyed described their initial response to library interactions as fear and discomfort.


These feelings were often caused by:

::  the size of the library

:: not knowing where things are located

:: uncertainty of how to begin the research process

:: uneasiness about what to do when they get there.
