Writing about web page http://www.jisc.ac.uk/media/documents/programmes/reppres/gg_final_keynote_11012008.pdfAn interesting report on research carried out into what the Google generation actually are like in their information seeking behaviour. All generations seem to like simple searching rather than deploying complex information skills, it seems. So it's a good job that repositories like WRAP can be indexed by Google and therefore their contents found through a Google search, rather than repositories waiting for people to visit the repository itself. It will be interesting to see how many users come to our content through services that index our records like Google rather than directly through our interface.
