Brinley Franklin and Terry Plum. Library Usage Patterns in the Electronic Information Environment. Information Research, 9, no. 4 (2004): paper 187. This article reports on a major survey of electronic information use, involving 15,000 users. The authors discover use of electronic sources shifting from in-library to remote use. No doubt that phenomenon is going to increase rapidly.
