Ny spændende undersøgelse om studerende og ny biblioteksteknologi

May 7th, 2009 af Søren Madsen

Char Booth har hos ACRL udgivet undersøgelsen Informing Innovation: Tracking Student Interest in Emerging Library Technologies at Ohio University. Den ser drønspændende ud og må blive tvangslæsning blandt mange på forskningsbiblioteker. Undersøgelsen ser både på de studerendes brug af nye teknologier, af bibliotekernes websider, deres IKT-færdigheder og informationskultur.

Informing Innovation: Tracking Student Interest in Emerging Library Technologies at Ohio University (pdf/147 s.)

Abstract:
This book by Char Booth examines one institution’s efforts to move away from technolust and towards a “culture of assessment.” It presents findings from an environmental scan conducted at Ohio University, which investigated the convergence of students, libraries, and emerging information, communication, and academic tools. Survey data is used to test generational and demographic assumptions that often guide technology development in academic libraries. The identification of student behaviors related to emerging and social technologies and the implications indicated by those behaviors are central to this study. The need for local user assessment is a fundamental message in this volume, which shares practical research strategies and methods with the reader. University and college libraries can use this case study and its appended survey instrument template to conduct similar investigations on their campuses.
