The results show that the service used most frequently by undergraduate students is the reference collection. The least used service is the Internet, more than 50 percent of the students never use Internet at the University Library. In general, students are very pleased with the service given by the reference librarians, and with the collection of reference books. They are less satisfied with the disposition of the reference collection and the number of reading places. Surprisingly only 9 percent of the students wish to be informed about the reference department through electronic sources such as the Internet. Most students, 56 percent, would prefer a information booklet, while 40 percent prefer to get their information from the librarians. (Less)
