Where do you get your Science news?
According to the PEW report Understanding the Participatory News Consumer, “92% of Americans get their daily news from multiple platforms.
- Portable: 33% of cell phone owners now access news on their cell phones.
- Personalized: 28% of internet users have customized their home page to include news from sources and on topics that particularly interest them.
- Participatory: 37% of internet users have contributed to the creation of news, commented about it, or disseminated it via postings on social media sites like Facebook or Twitter.”
As evidenced by these new titles in the Engineering and Architecture Library and the Physics Library at The Catholic University of America, the Science community is thinking and writing about how people get their science news.
