Abstract

Abstract The purpose of the present study was to identify and investigate the factors that influence the library clients’ impulsive behavior of using resources and services in academic library. The research was of a survey type and the research population consisted of students of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. A researcher-made questionnaire was also used for data collection. After measuring the validity and reliability of the research instrument, 380 questionnaires were distributed among the students using a stratified random sampling procedure. Structural Equation Analysis, Path Analysis as well as LISREL Software were used for data analysis. The results showed that the time available to the students and their interest in books and libraries bring about surfing and make the library a more enjoyable place for them. Furthermore, the results revealed that individual features influence the students’ tendency towards impulsive use. In addition, it was declared that the environmental features of the library directly affect students’ positive emotions and impulsive using behavior, and indirectly affect it through their positive emotion. The surfing enjoyment had a direct effect on the students’ positive emotion and their tendency towards the impulsive use of the library resources and services. After all, the direct relationship between the students’ positive emotion and their tendency towards impulsive use was not confirmed. However, the results of the path analysis showed a direct and significant effect of the positive emotion on the impulsive use of the library resources and services in the selected population
