Right Pew, Right Church

Quickly, this being a rahhhhhther busy week for Ms. FRL, is my one blog of note for this week. (It’s really a site with a feed for its formal reports.)

Did you know 36 million Americans have downloaded music? Who else would tell you that except Pew Internet and American Life?

Pew regularly publishes balanced, well-written, timely reports that “[explore] the impact of the Internet on children, families, communities, the work place, schools, health care and civic/political life.” Pew reports are essential reading for all librarians (bar none), and are non-techy and well-written enough for non-geeks and senior decision makers to read, enjoy, and learn from. Busy managers, note most Pew reports have an executive summary that can be digested in two or three minutes (and some reports are very, very short).

If you follow library lists and blogs, eventually some of Pew’s reports will trickle your way, but what fun is that? Subscribe. Enjoy.
