Pew – The changing world of libraries

The changing world of libraries, Lee Rainie, November 28, 2012. “Nine takeaways for librarians:

  1. E-reading is taking off because e-reading gadgets are taking off

  2. The gadget doesn’t make the reader, but it may change the reader
  3. E-book readers are reading omnivores (and probably influencers)
  4. E-book readers are not platform snobs AND they like different platforms for different purposes
  5. Library users are not always the same as library fans
  6. E-book borrowing has foothold – and whopping upside
  7. Library users are book buyers
  8. Library borrowing patterns are changing
  9. Collections are changing”
