“But why’s she got to go to the library?”

“Because that’s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.”                                 

—J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

In a conversation excerpt taken from one of the legendary films, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets seeks to reveal the importance of the role of libraries, one of which is if you feel “doubtful” about something, then you can find certainty in the library, why? Because the library is a storehouse of knowledge and information. Therefore it is not surprising if some students, especially those who are studying at ITS, often come to the library, even though their reasons for coming are quite diverse but in the end, they will have the same estuary, “information needs”.

As one of the activities at the close of the year 2018, the ITS Library seeks to reward students who are in accordance with the statistics that visit numbers are high and the number of collections borrowed.

For users with the most loans, they are Free Apianto from Civil Engineering, Prasetyo S. from Information Systems, Aditya Wimansyah from Engineering Physics. Then for the visitors with the most visits, they are Acmad Luthfi from Chemical Engineering, Yusuf Syahril from A. from Chemistry, and Gabriel Denis Devian from chemistry.

Intensely they visited the Library, at first it was not because of information needs. For example Aditya Wimansyah, who claimed his goal was to go to the library to find peace. Because of the frequent time spent in the Library, the initial purpose of seeking calm is finally to search for information and collections that support his study. In contrast to Yusuf Syahril who claimed, he initially came to the library because he was forced to.

“In our second semester there are literature guidance courses, so we have a mandatory schedule that requires us to come to the Library. At first, it was very forced, after a long time I felt that if I came to the library just looking for the signatures of the officers of the library, why did I lose. Finally, I began trying to utilize the collections, facilities, and services in the library. It turned out that the benefits that I felt were very large, the compulsion finally formed a good habit in me which is like studying in the library. ” Joseph said. (nrl).
