overview
Overview
  • Conduct national survey of information needs of users and potential users of online information
  • Primary focus on museums, public libraries and the Internet as sources
  • Telephone surveys of adults (18 and over)
slide4
The Power of TrustConclusion 1:Libraries and museums evoke consistent, extraordinary public trust among diverse adult users.
slide5

Libraries and museums are the most trusted sources of information according to a survey of over 1,700 adults.

slide6

The Internet Does Not Kill Libraries and Museums

Conclusion #2:Internet use is positively related to in-person visits to museums and libraries.

Amount of use of the Internet is positively correlated with the number of in-person visits to museums and has a positive effect on in-person visits to public libraries.

Trends in increased in-person visits to museums and public libraries are much more positive with adults who use the Internet than with those who do not.

Total Number of Visits to Museums by Adults, 2006

In-Person Visits 701 million

Remote Online Visits 542 million

Total Visits 1.2 billion

Total Number of Visits to Public

Libraries by Adults, 2006

In-Person Visits 762 million

Remote Online Visits 558 million

Total Visits 1.3 billion

slide12
The number of remote online visits is positively correlated with the number of in-person visits to museums and public libraries.
slide13

Q. Why do we need museums and libraries if we have the Internet?

  • Interconnections
  • Conclusion #3:Museums and public libraries
  • in-person and online serve important and complementary roles in supporting a wide variety of information needs.
slide14

To fulfill their need for information, most adults use museums, public libraries, and the Internet. Museums and public libraries are used by 70%, the Internet is used by 83%, and nearly half (47%) use all three. Only 7% of adults do not use any of the three sources.

slide15

The vast majority of visitors to museums (95%) and public libraries (96%) visit in-person; 45% of museum visitors visit online and in-person and 42% of public library visitors visit online and in-person.

slide18

Both in-person and remote visits to museums are learning experiences with adults indicating they learned something new in 87% of in-person visits and 86% of remote visits. Children were helped with learning more in 8% of in-person visits and 5% of remote visits.

slide19

The different modes of access to public libraries tend to address very different distributions of information needs. Online visits (both remote and in-library) are used much more for formal education and work-related needs than other in-person visits which are used much more for recreation or entertainment purposes.
