Perceptions of Libraries, 2010: Context and Community Perceptions of Libraries, 2010: Context and Community

Item #:MAN8411




OCLC explores how changing contexts impact perceptions and behaviors concerning libraries and information sources. In 2005, OCLC published Perceptions of Libraries and Information Resources, a report on how information consumers perceive of and use libraries, search engines, Web sites and other emerging information sources. Five years later, the technology and economic environments are vastly different, and the information consumer is even more empowered. Americans have made lifestyle changes during the recent recession. They are spending less in some areas while not sacrificing in others. And they are using libraries to help fill some of the gaps for items and services they can no longer afford.
Learn what has changed in the past five years and what perspectives and behaviors remain the same.
