On the Improvement of Library Information Services In Higher Education Facilities of Excellent Engineers


Relations between the information capabilities of students and the implementation of the project to the education of excellent engineers is analyzed. 62 representative university library websites as well as 189 students in our university were selected for comprehensive study. It is concluded that, the current university library information services have not yet been able to meet the requirements of educational reform, and years of development on digital resources with carrying out in large-scale has not produced desired results at undergraduate education. Three points of reform are proposed on the aspects as follows: (1) on the digital information resources development projects, (2) on the development of the students' information literacy , and (3) on the combination of information literacy education and professional education.
