Investigating How Chinese Students Conduct Research

The Miami University Libraries are seeking volunteer Chinese students to participate in a study exploring how Chinese students perform research in relation to classroom assignments.

The study seeks to explore and better understand the information needs of Chinese patrons, so Libraries’ services can be enhanced to better meet those needs.

Participation is strictly voluntary, and those interested must be at least 18 years old. The study involves a 30-minute one-on-one interview, and participants have the freedom to stop the interview at any time or skip any question(s) they do not wish to answer. Anonymity is guaranteed, and only the research team will have access to participant responses.

If you would like to participate in this study or have any questions about the study, please contact one of the following librarians:

In addition, you may contact the Research Ethics and Integrity Office at Miami University, 513-529-3600 or humansubjects@MiamiOH.edu, if you have questions about the rights of research subjects.
