The purpose of the study is to discuss Questia, a library database that is marketed directly to student users.
From a student’s perspective, Questia is very useful. It would not be a useful addition to undergraduate libraries, even if site licenses are available.
It would be interesting to design a study to compare library skills of undergraduates who are subscribed to Questia with those who participate in traditional library instruction sessions.
It is suggested that Questia should be recommended to an undergraduate student who is struggling with basic research skills or who is especially pressed for time.
There are no scholarly articles discussing Questia after 2012.
