ABSTRACT

The domestic and foreign standards of school libraries suggest that school library should be run to give useful and pleasant experiences to students. This study applies Csikszentmihalyi’s ‘flow theory’ to analyze the relationships between students’ flow experience and their satisfaction about school libraries use. The variables selected in this study are students’ satisfaction, flow experience, library skill, challenge of library use, types of library use and students’ learning styles. The research model is designed by using these 6 variables in this study. The data are collected from 293 students and analyzed by structural equation modeling. The results of this study are as follows: The entire casual relationships show that library skills influence in types of library use, types of library use affect students’ learning styles and students’ learning styles influence in satisfaction through flow. To improve students’ satisfaction about school library use, this study proposes effective ways related to teacher librarians’ role performances to expand students’ flow experience and increase their library skills.
