At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries

Briefly

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.

The report explores:

  • Habits and perceptions of online learners
  • Expectations for the future of online learning
  • Top-of-mind perceptions of a college education
  • Factors influencing the college choice
  • Library use by online learners—on campus and online
  • MOOCs—a massively interesting case study on the future of education
  • The library brand
  • Implications and opportunities for academic and public libraries
