At a Tipping Point: 
Education, Learning and Libraries

Session One: This session has ended. Please RSVP for Session Two.
Session Two: 8/15 at 11:30 am, ET

Join us for an online presentation of OCLC's most recent membership report, At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries, designed to explore emerging trends that impact libraries and librarianship. Fueled by mobile devices, new learning platforms and economic incentives, learners are trying and achieving success with new learning models. The information consumer has become an online education consumer. Nearly half of the online population has participated in online learning. See how trends and triggers are reshaping education and lifelong learning—and the opportunities and challenges this shift brings to libraries.

Join the Twitter conversation: #OCLCTippingPoint

During the session, you’ll learn about information consumers’ behaviors, beliefs and expectations for online learning.
Cathy De Rosa, OCLC Vice President for the Americas and Global Vice President of Marketing, will cover highlights of the report, exploring:

  • Habits and perceptions of online learners
  • Expectations for the future of online learning
  • Top-of-mind perceptions of a college education
  • Factors influencing the college choice
  • Library use by online learners
  • MOOCs—a massively interesting case study on the future of education
  • The library brand
  • Implications and opportunities for academic and public libraries.
