“Students are using Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, all these Web 2.0 systems every day,” Mr. Beykpour says. “It’s like their top five Web sites they use. And the sixth Web site is the school Web site, because you have to use it. And that’s where the biggest disconnect is.”

Las gestern eine Studie, dass die Email-Nutzung bei 12-17 Jährigen um ein Viertel zurückgegangen ist. Die kommunizieren via Facebook oder StudiVZ. Die Bibliothek erreicht diese Klientel also immer weniger per Email. Kann sich immer weniger in die Kommunikation “einschalten”. Also auch hier – neben der fehlenden mobilen Benutzerfreundlichkeit – ein drohender “Disconnect”.
