    Primary Research Group Inc., has published the Survey of American College Students 2022, Use of Informational Literacy Tutorials, ISBN 979-8-88517-058-1
    This study presents data from a representative survey of 1,765 full time American college students from 4-year colleges in the United States about their use of information literacy tutorials, and other means of learning to use the academic library. The report gives detailed data on who uses information literacy tutorials provided by the academic library or those from other sources, and how many they use. Also, the study presents student library patron satisfaction data with library-furnished tutorials, as well as open ended information on which tutorials students appreciate the most and what they feel they need but cannot find.
    Just a few of this 123-page report's many findings are that:
    • 34.62% of students raised outside of the USA had used a library-furnished information literacy tutorial.
    • Use was far higher among those in certificate or non-degree programs than those in four year degree programs.
    • The tendency to ask a librarian for direct help rather than watch or listen to a tutorial peaked among students aged 22.
    Data is broken out by more than 20 institutional and personal variables including but not limited to: income of family of origin, race/ethnicity, religion, gender, regional origins, current employment status, sexual orientation, major field of study, age, year of school standing, type of college, size of college, tuition level of college, and many other variables.
