Findings from a briefing study commissioned by the British Library and JISC to identify how the specialist researchers of the future, currently in their school or pre-school years, are
likely to access and interact with digital resources in five to ten years’ time.

The purpose of this study is to help library and information services anticipate and react to any new or emerging behaviours in the most effective way.

In this report, they define the `Google generation’ as those born after 1993 and explore the world of a cohort of young people with little or no recollection of life before the web. For a PDF of the briefing paper please click the link below.
