Student Library Users: Deliver what they need-- the way they want it


STUDENT LIBRARY USERS: Deliver what they need -- the way they want it
Friday, October 23, 2009 Clark Kerr Campus, University of California, Berkeley


Student library users are changing faster than the libraries that serve them. The multi-tasking, social networking generation wants instant information. The Internet offers a global information marketplace; school and university libraries need to re-tool or become neglected storefronts.

  • What services do our users really want and need?
  • What skills should we be learning today to be successful in the future?
  • Can libraries give users what they want and need and at the same time help them discern quality information?

Join a day-long conversation among library educators, academic, school, and young adult librarians, and the students they serve. Through keynote addresses, breakout sessions, and panel discussions, we will explore our changing users and highlight innovative library services that point the way to the future.
