ricklibrarian: Technology's Future at Public Libraries: Staying Relevant in the Digital Age: a PLA Program

ricklibrarian: Technology's Future at Public Libraries: Staying Relevant in the Digital Age: a PLA Program | innovative libraries | Scoop.it

Most of the news is good when it comes to technology and libraries, according to the latest report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project. Contrary to the idea that new technology would displace libraries, Lee Rainieof the Pew Charitable Trust reports that Americans are still in love with their libraries. What's even more remarkable is that people who have taken to new devices like libraries more than people who have not. Most of the tech savvy have not abandoned libraries. Instead, they keep libraries as one of their channels of content.

Trudy Raymakers's insight:

Continuous reference to the findings of PewInternet is important for the future - public value argument- of public libraries.
