In 2012, Library Journal surveyed more than 3,000 students and faculty members to determine their perceptions and usage behaviors about their academic libraries. In late 2012, LJ released Patron Profiles, Academic Library Edition, a comprehensive 52 page report that analyzes the data and covers a wide range of topics.

This special Library Journal webcast will take a deep dive into the data with respected academic voices and LJ editorial expertise. Listen to our panel discuss some of the report’s major findings and get a close look into trends driving library use. Attendees will leave with insights and actionable takeaways to help guide effective long term planning and prepare you with the tools needed to engage students and faculty to create stronger libraries.

You do not have to have a copy of the report to have an educational experience but LJ will be offering a discount to all webcast viewers as well as the full executive summary as a free download on the webcast console to webcast viewers.
