The New Library Patron
Our always popular speaker Lee Rainie discusses the Project’s new research about those who use the library and those who do not: who they are, what their information needs are, what kinds of technology they use, and how libraries can meet the varying needs of their patrons. This keynote is filled with strategies and opportunities for libraries!
Lee Rainie is the Director of the Pew Internet & American Life Project, a non-profit, non-partisan “fact tank” that studies the social impact of the internet. The Project has issued more than 350 reports based on its surveys that examine people’s online activities and the internet’s role in their lives.
Lee is a co-author of Networking: The New Social Operating System, a book about the social impact of the internet and mobile technology. He is also co-author of four books about the future of the internet, which are based on Project surveys.
Lee Rainie’s Keynote address begins on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 8:45AM Pacific time and will be streamed right here.
