Erratum to: Chapter “The Academic Reading Format International Study (ARFIS): Investigating Students Around the World” in: S. Kurbanoğlu et al. (Eds.): Information Literacy: Key to an Inclusive Society, CCIS, DOI:  10.1007/978-3-319-52162-6_21

The original chapter was published in Communications in Computer and Information Science 2016, 676, pp. 215–227.

After publication of the original paper [https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-52162-6_21] it came to the authors’ attention that the Chinese translation of question 10: I prefer electronic textbooks over print textbooks, was inverted to read I prefer print textbooks over electronic textbooks. Therefore, Figure 3 and the related discussions on pages 220–221 and 227 were incorrect.

Electronic textbooks.

With more libraries investing in electronic textbooks, it is important to understand our students’ attitudes towards using them. Overall, nearly 69% of the students disagreed with preferring e-textbooks. Figure 3 shows amalgamated results and country percentages for Question 10.
