Summary "Much has changed since OCLC published 'Perceptions of libraries and information resources' in 2005. America has seen one of the worst recessions, and there have been advances in technology. How these and other changes in the environment have affected the perceptions and use of information resources and the library is the focus of the first section of our report. ... Perceptions and use of information resources and the library vary at different stages in life. What we have learned about libraries, communities and age is the focus of the second section of our report"--P. 1.
