Slideshow: Tech trends, library stats, and how teens do research
Last week, I gave a presentation at the Westchester Library Association’s annual conference that touched on a lot of our recent findings on library use, as well as a broad overview of technology adoption among adults and teens and a quick look at how teens do research in the digital age. While all of those topics deserve their own blog post, I wanted to put up the slides from the talk and spotlight the reports that cover these topics in more detail.
We also have a few related reports coming up in the next month or so – including one about how teens and young adults use libraries – so stay tuned!
View the slides here.
