Chris and Bob returned to the Long Island Library Resources Council’s Conference on Libraries and the Future. This year we had some great guests and because there was so much to talk about, we are splitting this episode into 3 parts.

Part 2 features Lee Rainie, the Director of Internet and Technology at Pew Research. If you live in Libraryland, then you know how important Pew’s statistical analysis is to the future of libraries. Lee Rainie, a proud Long Island native, took some time to talk about what libraries are doing well and what the future holds for libraries based on the historical statistical analysis. Speaking with Lee was a pleasure and we thank LILRC for making him available to us!
