Academic work would suffer without library sources

Seventeen percent of the readings [respondents] obtained from the library would not otherwise be obtained if they were not available from the library. This is a lost opportunity, and the value of the academic work would suffer if the library sources were unavailable. In addition, if the library were unavailable, the respondents stated that they would expect it would take them more time and money to obtain the information from another source (p. 3).
