Libraries and learning communities (video & slides) | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project

"Director Lee Rainie gave a keynote address at the Internet Librarian conference that examined the potential role librarians can play in “learning communities” – both physical and virtual. Includes video and slides.

 

He looked at five questions that libraries face as they consider their role in communities:

1) What is the future of knowledge?

2) What is the future of reference expertise?

3) What is the future of public technology?

4) What is the future of learning spaces?

5) What is the future of community anchor institutions?

 

You can watch a video of his talk above or on UStream."

A keynote panel looked at the Internet in 2020 and predicted important trends (Internet Librarian 2011 Keynote -Future Internet 2020: http://t.co/KtVyWaGu...)...

 

"The panel looked at the internet in 2020 and held a “TrendWatch Smackdown”. James Werle began with a look beyond Web 2.0, noting that the changes of the last few years are just a blink of the eye in the history of librarianship. In 1996, only 28% of public libraries offered Internet access, and the average web usage by Americans was 1/2 hour a month! Global Internet traffic is predicted to quadruple by 2015, and the IT revolution will continue to produce untold innovation. Internet traffic is forecast to quadruple by 2015, with more devices, more people conneccted, better connectivity, and more video. Video will be the fastest application driving traffic in the next 5 years. All applications will require high performance broadband. Many libraries are falling behind the bandwidth curve; over half of US libraries report that they do not have enough workstations to meet demand at certain times during a busy day. Access to high performance broadband networks is essential for libraries to evolve in the future."
