Annual Conference session

Program - 2013 Annual Conference

Who Uses Libraries and Who Doesn’t: A Special Typology

Monday, June 30 || 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Las Vegas Convention Center N243

Lee Rainie, Director, Pew Research Center’s Internet Project will discuss the Project’s new study about the different kinds of library users and non-users. Their work segments library users into "types" whose characteristics help explain why certain people use libraries - and others do not.

"We are excited to have Lee Rainie share the findings of Pew's new study for the CORS Annual Conference session," said CORS chair Linda Hofschire. "This will be a great opportunity for librarians to gain a better understanding of the types of people who use their libraries, and how they can use this information strategically for planning, promotion, and advocacy efforts."

He will explore the implications of this work for library leaders as they explore new services. How can this knowledge help your library improve its services? Come to the session and find out!
