Types of browsers (people not technology)

I have been hanging on to these items from my blog reader to post about. So since I have a little time to type while at a City Council meeting, I thought I would catch up. The first is from Stephen Abram. He started by giving credit to Steven Cohen for locating Suggestica.

While I don’t buy a lot of books, after all, I work in a building with over half a million books. But the categorization is important for library services, because while this is about book buyers, there is much similarity with library users. They broke users into four categories: Browsers, Trackers, Analyzers, and Seekers.

Take a look, it will inform our design of new libraries.
