Networked Individuals, Networked Libraries

Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, will address the annual conference of LAUNC-CH, university librarians in North Carolina. The title of his talk is “Networked Individuals, Networked Libraries.” He will discuss the latest research from the Project about the way Americans use the internet and their cell phones. He will explore how revolutions in social networking and technology adoption have changed the way people access, share, and create information and the way that libraries can adapt to this new information ecology to “stay vital” to their users.
