    Abstract: This study compares academic library use of
    undergraduate students in the united states and
    undergraduate students in Taiwan. Frequency of library use
    was treated as a dependent variable to determine the best
    predictors from 16 independent variables via a
    questionnaire administered to junior students in the
    University of Wisconsin-Madison in the U. S. and the
    National Taiwan University in Taiwan.
    The items composing the dependent variables of library
    use were factor analyzed to determine the underlying
    structure of the purposes of library use and the frequency
    of library use. For both samples, two factors explained
    well over 50 per cent of the variance in the items: NONCOLLECTION
    USE and COLLECTION USE. The factor scores for
    these factors were used as dependent variables with 16
    predictors, and backward method of multiple regression was
    applied to extract the best predictors for each sample.
    The results indicated that the situational variables such as the requirement of term papers, assigned reading beyond
    textbooks, instructor's encouragement to use the library,
    and the need for a quiet place to study were the most
    important variables in the American sample, interacting
    with psychological traits, library-relationship variables,
    and demographic variables in their relationship to
    undergraduate library use. In the Chinese sample,
    demographic variables such as mother's educational level
    and psychological variables such as dogmatism, and antiintellectualism
    were more important than situational
    variables in their relationship to undergraduate library
