OCLC’s College Students’ Perceptions Report

OCLC has released a new cut on the original Dec. 2005 Perceptions report.
They’ve re-cut the data on library use, awareness and use of library electronic resources, the Internet search engine, the library and the librarian, free vs. for-fee information and the “Library” brand from the point-of-view of college students and 14- to 17-year-olds.
Here’s a link to College Students’ Perceptions of Libraries and Information Resources report.
It’s worth checking out the “all-new graphs and additional analysis of how college student data compare to that of total respondents.”
“Overall, respondents have positive, if outdated, views of the “Library.” Younger respondents — teenagers and young adults — do not express positive associations as frequently.”
This is our future folks.
