The ways people acquire information are changing from national to global, linear to linked and print to digital, which requires librarians to develop new ways of providing services and systems to meet the needs of library users and to attract library non-users. Dr. Lynn Silipigni Connaway will discuss the common themes from findings of 12 studies published in the UK and US between 2005-2010 identified in the publication, "Digital Information Seekers: Report of Findings from Selected OCLC, RIN, and JISC user Behaviour Projects." Connaway also will present new findings from the US/UK. Visitors and Residents project (JISC 2011), funded by JISC, OCLC, Oxford University, and the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, which attempts to fill the gap in user behavior studies identified in the Digital Information Seeker Report (2010) for a longitudinal study "to identify how individuals engage in both the virtual and physical worlds to get information for different situations" (p. 56). Students and researchers are confident in their own ability to find and use information. However, information literacy has not kept pace with digital literacy and there is a need for education and support. What can librarians do to make libraries more relevant today?
Presenter: Dr. Lynn Silipigni Connaway, OCLC
