Who are our users and how do they access information?


Baby Boomers & Generation XBaby boomer is a term used to describe a person born between 1946 and 1964. av,. now 55 (Bill Gates b1955, Ossie Osbourne b1948) Generation X is term used to describe generations in many countries around the world born from 1964 to around 1980. Wikipedia


Generation Y The term Generation Y refers to a specific cohort of individuals born from 1980-1994 (although this is disputed by demographers and varies across countries). In their recent book, Reynol Junco and Jeanna Mastrodicasa (2007) found that in a survey of 7,705 college students in the US: 97% own a computer 94% own a cell phone 76% use Instant Messaging. 15% of IM users are logged on 24 hours a day/7 days a week 34% use websites as their primary source of news 28% own a blog and 44% read blogs 49% download music using peer-to-peer file sharing 75% of college students have a Facebook account [22] 60% own some type of portable music and/or video device such as an iPod. It has been said that what characterises Gen Y is I WANT IT NOW! Wikipedia


Generation Z Generation Z is the generation that follows Generation Y, which followed Generation X. The term has been used to refer to today's pre-teens (born after 1996), but is used more often to refer to people born after the year 2000. Both refer to "the first generation to be born into a digital world“ Wikipedia


How can we respond to the changes?

A paradigm shift?Rethinking the traditional ‘information room’ model Providing resources online Continuing to provide selected hard copy? Integrating online and physical collections Managing online resources


How are electronic resources different from physical resources?Physical - fixed in one place Physical - requires duplication, or at least signposting to cope, with multiple sites Electronic – can be accessed anywhere Electronic – allows you to create bespoke ‘sub-collections’ easily Electronic – accessible 24/7 Physical allows us to guide users , whereas they are on their own


Range of MediaOne-to-one Podcasts Email Live text chat / video chat Social bookmarkingPaper-based Social networking Website Streaming video Online fairs


So…The information revolution has caused us review the traditional ways of presenting careers information and how ICT can provide an alternative platform. But how can we manage an electronic collection?
