GALICIA GAONA, Julio Cesar y VILLUENDAS GONZALEZ, Erwin Rogelio. Relación entre hábitos lectores, el uso de la biblioteca y el rendimiento académico en una muestra de estudiantes de psicología. Rev. educ. sup [online]. 2011, vol.40, n.157, pp. 55-73. ISSN 0185-2760.
This paper aims to describe the relationship between reading habits, use of the university library and the academic performance of psychology students by means of a survey-type instrument with Likert-type responses. It is an observational study with a cross-sectional stratified random sample of 321 psychology students. Academic performance showed statistically significant correlations with some components of reading habits, such as attitudes toward reading (ρ =.413; p<.001) and with the frequency reported by the person about strategies used to find information in the library (ρ =.239; p<.001), among others.
