Information Behaviour of the Researcher of the Future

The British Library and JISC did a study to identify how researchers of the future are likely to access and interact with digital resources in five to ten years. They hope to help libraries anticipate new behaviors in the `Google generation’.

This study touches on the experiences, expectations, and limitations of the upcoming college students and how libraries can improve our own philosophy and practices.

A very interesting read.
