Launching the report: At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries, OCLC stated:
“The pressure is mounting on traditional models of learning. We see evidence in the research that we may be reaching a tipping point in how consumers think about and would like to manage their education... The same digital forces reshaping education will reshape library users’ expectations, on our campuses and across our communities.”
At a Tipping Point provides data on consumer attitudes and perceptions about online learning and MOOCs. The report also includes data about parents’ and students’ perceptions of campus life and their use of libraries — both at the library and online.
