A recent Library Journal article, Know Your Students, details the methodology used to conduct an ethnographic study at the University of Rochester’s Rush Rhees Library.  It also provides an overview of the findings from this study and interesting insights into how students use the library and spend their time on campus.  A previous post on our library blog, An Anthropologist in the Library, also cites this same study.
