The Myth and the Reality of the Evolving Patron: The RUSA President’s Program
4-5:30p.m. on Saturday, June 29
Rainie, co-author of the new book “Networked: The New Social Operating System”, and lead researcher on new studies of adults and teens will share the latest data about how Americans are interacting with information technology and electronic books. Program participants will learn more about how Americans think about libraries and information, their use of library services, and what they value–important information that can help libraries improve collections and services.
On Sunday, June 30, from 10:30-11:30a.m., join Rainie and library leaders Emily Ford, David Lankes and Marie Radford to discuss how the Pew study data will influence your library’s future. Join the conversation surrounding this topic on Twitter by using the hashtag #rusapres13. More information here.
