Abstract

This paper explores the patterns of use of print materials and digital resources in an undergraduate library in a Chilean university, by the students’ discipline and year of study. A quantitative analysis was carried out, including descriptive analysis of contingency tables, chisquared tests, t-tests, and multiple linear regressions. The results showed that the use of the library by undergraduate students did not follow a common pattern and instead varied across disciplines. The article also shows that access to digital resources does not replace the use of print materials.
