Abstract

Many problems regarding literacy need to be explored and examined in depth. An alarming fact is recognized from the ranking of international literacy, which reveals the fact that the ability to read and write Indonesian people is very left behind. Indonesia is ranked 60th out of a total of 61 countries. This is not without any reason, the culture of reading (bookkeeping) and literacy of Indonesian people lags behind four years compared to other countries. This research is a field study research that intends to study intensively about literacy in universities. Descriptive research is a research that prioritizes the description of events that occur and take place in present or in the past. The approach used in this study is a qualitative approach, which intends to understand the phenomenon of what is experienced by research subjects, such as behaviour, perception, views, motivation, and daily actions. The results of this study found the percentage of findings related to students' reading interest in college. Of all the components of the question, it was quantitatively concluded that students' reading interest in college was still low. This was measured by several indicators, including reading needs, reading difficulties, reading goals and techniques, references and lectures.
