More on Computer Use in Brent Libraries

Looking at the recent PLUS data on Brent libraries I saw that there are figures on whether people use library computers or their own.

In the sample 31% of users intended to use a library computer and 25% actually did so.  That underlines what many people have long suspected that library users are often attracted by the PCs as much as the books.  Still more interesting was the response on use of their own computers by users.   No less than 23% of users used their own computers.  That is a hefty figure and demonstrates that the Sieghart Report was right to highlight the importance of Wifi (which was an essential part of the Libraries Transformation Project proposals).  It should also influence the design of libraries in ensuring the adequate provision of charging points and seating.
