  10. 10. findings Resources: advanced search and reference management tools win the day Researchers want advanced search functionality that goes beyond text An average of 40% of survey respondents said they are inclined to use tools they learned about in Growing Knowledge Better organisation of research papers on one’s own machine
  11. 11. findings [continued] Research space: free wi-fi and their own gear Wi-fi access is, not surprisingly, rated as ‘essential’ to a physical research library A library workstation is only desirable if it provides a greater access to resources other than one’s own computer Ultimately remote access to resources was more important than physically visiting the library.
  12. 12. recommendation Focus efforts on the greater provision of remote access to our physical resources Provide greater access to advanced search and reference management tools and develop a more comprehensive training role to facilitate their effective use. Move away from viewing ourselves simply as content providers and acknowledge key role in facilitating the full digital research process.
