English abstract

Review of Susan Gibbons: The academic library and the net gen student. Making the connections. Chicago: American Library Association 2007 Susan Gibbons is Associate Dean for Public Services & Collection Development at University of Rochester's River Campus Libraries. From 2004 to 2006, library staff surveyed work habits and internet usage of undergraduate students, guided by social anthropologist Nancy Fried Foster. This volume is essentially based on those survey results. Gibbons defines the term "net generation" and presents social software tools as an integral part in this generation's everyday life. The book contributes considerably to understand internet usage, work and leisure habits of today's and prospective students.

Rezension von: Susan Gibbons: The academic library and the net gen student. Making the connections. Chicago: American Library Association 2007 Susan Gibbons arbeitet bei den River Campus Libraries der University of Rochester. An dieser Universität wurden von 2004 bis 2006 unter Anleitung durch eine Sozialanthropologin, Nancy Fried Foster, die Arbeitsgewohnheiten der Undergraduate-Studierenden, also bis zum Bachelor-Level, gründlich untersucht. Unter anderem darauf basiert der vorliegende Band, der sich von anderen Library 2.0-Büchern dadurch unterscheidet, dass Aussagen über Internetgebrauch von Studierenden auf einer besonders fundierten empirischen Basis stehen. Gibbons definiert, was unter der "Net Generation" zu verstehen ist, und stellt Social Software-Tools vor, deren Verwendung für viele heutige Studierende selbstverständlich ist. Das Buch leistet einen wesentlichen Beitrag zum Verständnis der Lebens- und Arbeitswelt heutiger bzw. zukünftiger Studierender.
