Research shows that college freshmen face a real challenge when they first conduct research at the college level. Despite their high levels of confidence, the reality is that many of them lack information literacy skills to find and access academic resources and scholarly information, in turn hindering their academic careers. Where are students struggling with information literacy? How are students using sources in higher ed?

This informational presentation will discuss what we have learned from both external studies as well as our own data analysis from EasyBib's 40 million users.
