The needs of library users are described in the context of a self-service, user-oriented library. "Introduction: It is estimated that the average scientist spends between 20 and 25 per cent of his working time searching for information. Because of this, it is obviously desirable that information needs should be studied with a view to improving the libraries' role as an information transfer agent."
