Abstract

Over the past two decades, computer-based technologies have become dominant forces to shape and reshape the products and services the academic library has to offer. The application of library technologies has had a profound impact on the way library resources are being used. Although many students continue to experience high levels of library anxiety, it is likely that the new technologies in the library have led to them experiencing other forms of negative affective states that may be, in part, a function of their attitude towards computers. This study investigates whether students' computer attitudes predict levels of library anxiety.
