The Library Pros interview with Lee Rainie

The Library Pros podcast interviewed Lee Rainie at the Long Island Library Resource Council conference.  Their description of the 40-minute episode is:
Part 2 features Lee Rainie, the Director of Internet and Technology at Pew Research. If you live in Libraryland, then you know how important Pew’s statistical analysis is to the future of libraries. Lee Rainie, a proud Long Island native, took some time to talk about what libraries are doing well and what the future holds for libraries based on the historical statistical analysis. Speaking with Lee was a pleasure and we thank LILRC for making him available to us!
I have been fortunate to hear Lee Rainie speak many times and I always learn something new. What is new in this interview, for me, are his thoughts about the future focus of libraries.  That begins around minute 16 in the podcast.

Thanks to Chris and Bob - the Library Pros - for their continued podcasting efforts!
