But what do the studies say about the remaining 72% of us; how are we doing? Well, according to the Pew Research Internet Project on African Americans and Technology Use, not as bad as we’ve been lead to believe. In fact, Pew Research Center, one of the leading institutions on issues and trends shaping America, is happy to report that among young (e.g. 18-29 yrs. of age), college-educated, and higher-income African Americans, internet use and home broadband access are comparable with their white counterparts.
My frustration is not a indictment against anyone, or even a charge that all the research done to-date is wrong. This is my digital outlook, pure and simple. And, I believe the information provided by in this Pew Research Report is important for today’s librarians to realize because despite being intelligent, rational human beings who understand everybody is unique, sometimes it can get hard to see the individual among the crowd, especially in terms of the types of services and assistance today's libraries offer.
