Abstract

This paper reports on a case study research conducted at a Self-Access Learning Center (salc) from 2009 to 2012. Over these four years data was collected through a survey from over 6000 participants regarding their access and use of the self facility and resources. The article reports on various on-site learning environments and the influence this may have of eflstudents' utilization of the salc. This observation revealed that due to competition between libraries, and the increasing emergence of mobile devices, university students are less likely to use salc. The quantitative findings confirm that students are less likely to make use of this salc's facility, resources and services. While students need to enhance their learning skills, salc may no longer be the place where students congregate to do so.
