Gustavus Study Featured in U.S. News & World Report Story

Posted on December 16th, 2011 by

A study authored by Gustavus professors and academic librarians Barbara Fister and Julie Gilbert is the subject of a recent article by U.S. News & World Report reporter Ryan Lytle.

The study, which included responses from 717 college students, noted that 93 percent of respondents enjoy reading for pleasure, but that students lack the free time to read.

Fister, Gilbert, and Gustavus student Tristan Richards are all quoted in the U.S. News & World Report article, which is available online. Fister and Gilbert’s report and analysis of the survey is also available online and is titled “Reading, Risk, and Reality: College Students and Reading for Pleasure.”
