Mapping the needs of a generation
Emerging findings from a major three-year research study into the
information-seeking behaviour of doctoral students have highlighted the need
for far greater understanding of the generation born between 1982 and 1994 –
commonly dubbed Generation Y.
Researchers of Tomorrow was commissioned by the British Library and JISC to
establish a benchmark for research behaviour, against which future
generations can be measured – and also to provide guidance for librarians
and information specialists on how best to meet the research needs of
Generation Y scholars.
