- when it came out in January! They gathered data from 1,651 graduates from 10 universities in the USA (including 126 interviews). They asked about the graduates' learning needs for their peronal, workplace and community life, and explored how the graduates answered these information and learning needs. They also asked whether the graduates used information skills learnt at university.
There is a full report and a short video, and infographic.
