A Survey of Global Library Trends
Today’s rising generation of readers, known as millennials, includes digital natives, savvy social media users, and consumers who are more concerned with quality and value than brand loyalty. In September 2014, a Pew Research Center study stated that people under 30 read more than their elders and utilise libraries for information not found on the internet.
To further validate this claim, Ingenta partnered with OnePoll to survey 2,000 respondents in the US and UK, aged 18-34, to dig deeper into the reading lives of millennials and identify the ways publishers could better connect with this audience. Survey findings were revealed on March 26th, 2015, at the Publishing Perspectives Designing Book for Millennials Conference.
