Abstract

This exploratory study examines doctoral and master’s student use of research tools and their scholarly information experiences with such research tools as EndNote, Mendeley, and Zotero. While the data does not suggest new researcher behaviors and trends related to use of these tools, the study does illuminate a growing demand for academic and library systems integration to enable more efficient and effective research practices among graduate students.
