In this latest report to the OCLC membership, At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries, OCLC explores the information consumer’s behaviors, beliefs and expectations for online learning.
Fueled by mobile devices, new learning platforms and economic incentives, learners are trying and achieving success with new learning models. The information consumer has become an online education consumer.
The study aims to provide librarians with important information about the trends and triggers that are reshaping education—and the opportunities and challenges this shift brings to libraries.
This report suggests that Shiyali Ramamrita Ranganathan’s Five Laws of Library Science can be reordered and reinterpreted to reflect today’s library resources and services, as well as the behaviors that people demonstrate when engaging with them.
