“How Libraries Add Value to Their Communities”
Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Internet & America Life Project
Presented at Computers In Libraries, March 2011
The Net, smartphones, and other technologies have added to the way people can engage with so much to local communities and wider communities of interest. Yet, there are many gaps. Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, explores those gaps at the Computers in Libraries conference. He points to some findings of his Project that highlight areas where libraries and information services add value to the participants in their communities.
The video of the presentation runs about one hour.
