Presentation: Friending Libraries: Why libraries can become nodes in people’s social networks

Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Internet & American Life Project spoke at Computers in Libraries today. Here' a link to his presentation slides.

From the Summary:

Lee discussed Pew Internet's latest findings and why they suggest that libraries can play a role in people’s social networks in the future. He described the reasons that people rely more and more on their social networks as they share ideas, learn, solve problems, and seek social support. And he explored how libraries can act as "nodes" in people’s networks.
