If you check out or download e-books from your local public library, please take our qualitative online survey and tell us about your experiences!
Our recent e-reading report has received a lot of attention over the past week, and one section in particular that seemed to spark conversation was our “print vs. e-books” showdown. When does print win out over e-books (and vice versa?)
Over the course of the next two years, we’ll come out with a series of reports examining technology adoption and use in libraries, patrons’ expectations, the “library of the future,” and how libraries fit into people’s lives in all sorts of ways.
Chances are, if you’re reading this post, you’re someone who loves storytelling as much as we do. And while we at Pew Internet primarily tell stories through data, we also rely heavily on qualitative research to help us better understand the larger trends we observe in our research.
You may notice that this website looks and feels a bit different from the home site of pewresearch.org/internet.
Laurie Putnam at Next Libraries has a great post up discussing the plans of our new research initiative to study libraries in the digital age.
