  2. They can trust the quality of the library’s resources.
  3. It’s easy and convenient for students to find what they need at the library.
  4. They want (and need) the assistance of librarians and library staff.
  5. The library offers an environment conducive to study and research.
  6. Library resources help students use and cite materials accurately.
  7. The library offers computers and Internet service, which make it possible for them to complete their assignments.
