Studying Students: A Second Look presents the results of further ethnographic projects within the University of Rochester’s River Campus Libraries. Topics range from how college students “learn the ropes” to their use of technology and how they study and write their research papers. The volume also discusses what professors expect of their students and the similarities and differences among faculty, student and librarian research practices. Filled with ideas for applying the findings, the book provides additional insight into the place and role of libraries in the academy.
