Abstract
Investigates library use and research behaviour of business students at California State University at San Marcos. A sample of 68 graduate and 91 undergraduate students were surveyed and observed for their behaviour in 3 conceptual domains: query formulation and task assignments, prereference process expectations and post reference process responses. Participant observations confirmed many of the student attitudes revealed in the survey
