Lee Rainie of the Pew Internet & American Life Project has posted a Powerpoint presentation entitled How libraries can survive in the new media ecosystem. Lots of interesting thoughts and trends, as always. I found the Action Points starting on slide 28 particularly thought-provoking. Is your library findable?
This speech pulls together Pew Internet Project data about how people's use of the internet and cell phones has fundamentally changed the "information ecosystem" in 10 ways. Lee discusses how this has changed the role of libraries in the digital age and he points out ways that libraries can adapt to meet the expectations and demands of patrons.
