Did you see the preliminary findings from the Young Children, New Media & Libraries survey?

At the beginning of the month, Cen and Liz Mills–two of the folks involved in the Young Children, New Media & Libraries survey–shared some preliminary findings of the survey on the ALSC Blog. Some of the tidbits they shared include that 70% of survey respondents are using new media in their library programs for young children, and that 58% consult some sort of resource before acquiring any new media.

The full results of the survey, a joint effort between ALSC, the iSchool at the University of Washington, and Little eLit, will be published this spring in Children and Libraries. In the meantime, click over to the ALSC Blog post to see a few more early details from the survey.
