|Abstract: ||This presentation summarizes part of an ongoing worldwide endeavor by ProQuest to understand the informational needs of scholars, particularly faculty and graduate students. This study focuses on Chinese speaking communities in mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. The presentation compares results from previous studies in the Unites States, including some participation from scholars in Europe and Australia, referred to as ‘the West’ – and ‘Chinese scholars’ from Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. This presentation is a summary of key findings. More detailed information is available from ProQuest, and from papers that have been and will be published on the research series.|
