Lee Rainie, director of Internet, Science, and Technology research at the Pew Research Center, will present new survey findings about how people use libraries, the kinds of services and programs people would like from libraries, and how libraries are connected to communication education and learning environments. He will describe how many people are "professional" learners who are trying to connect to jobs and skills improvements; how many people are "personal" learners who are trying to engage with material that will help them enrich their lives, pursue new community activities, and embrace hobbies. He will provide new data about how people see where libraries fit into professional and personal learning environments.
