This study was commissioned by the British Library and

JISC to identify how the specialist researchers of the

future, currently in their school or pre-school years, are

likely to access and interact with digital resources in five

to ten years’ time. This is to help library and information

services to anticipate and react to any new or emerging

behaviours in the most effective way. In this report, we

define the `Google generation’ as those born after 1993

and explore the world of a cohort of young people with

little or no recollection of life before the web.
