Interazione online e Information Literacy: i tanti aspetti dei "visitatori" e dei "residenti" digitali

Lynn Silipigni Connaway will discuss the findings of research on how individuals engage with technology and get their information. The research has been published in an OCLC report, The Many Faces of Digital Visitors & Residents: Facets of Online Engagement, and was conducted in Hong Kong, Italy, Spain, the UK, and the US. Dr. Connaway will compare the results from the different institutions and project members from Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore will discuss how the results provided insight for making changes and strategic planning at the university library.
The results of the research provide insights for teaching and learning, including information literacy programs and e-learning, as well as the development of such programs and services and events to support these programs in libraries and information centers.
