Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, will be joined by digital and library experts to discuss the findings of the Project’s most recent report, The Changing World of Library Services, which asked a representative sample of Americans what types of services they value in their library and what types of services they would like to see their library start to offer. These findings are critical to informing the conversation on how to advance change in libraries in order to keep them relevant and responsive to communities in our increasingly digital age.

The Pew Research Center (http://www.pewresearch.org/) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit "fact tank" that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Pew Internet & American Life Project is conducting research that explores how people get and share information in the digital age and what that means for the role of libraries in their communities. The research looks at different demographic patterns of technology and library use.

Presented by: Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project and other digital and library experts.
