People Mainly Use the Kindle Fire to (Gasp) Read

eBookNewser – “We’ve all read lots of survey results on eReaders and who’s buying them, and here’s another one, only this time it’s focused on the Kindle and Kindle Fire. Citi released a report this week explaining the ‘buy’ recommendation they have on Amazon’s stock. As part of their research, they surveyed 1,100 online consumers here in the US.

Library Staff Report Use of Online Tools (Again)

Webjunction – “Last summer we reported the results of our survey of WebJunction members about their use of 10 types of online tools and resources. This spring we surveyed our membership again with a similar question, but this time separating professional use from personal use. We also updated the tool list, adding mobile apps, chat and IM, video- and photo-sharing sites, online games, and discussion forums. This year, we had 1,039 responses, in contrast to the ~575 last year. But the makeup of the respondents are similar: 70% are from public libraries, and all have registered as WebJunction members.”
