    Hi All,
    I thought I posted this but I think it did not get posted. My library has several senior patrons; I was thinking of using seniors for my community. I imagine there is a lot of interesting research about the needs of seniors…I am also interested in terms of brain elasticity and how seniors (and others!) can keep their minds young and active by learning new skills. @michael do you know if there is some robust research on this topic? I intend to dig in today!

    • @dianarivers Hi there – I can’t find another post about your choice. Maybe it didn’t publish. Seniors as an information community is a good choice. I would think there is some strong LIS research devoted to the info seeking behaviors of seniors out there in the databases. The brain elasticity angle is interesting. Perhaps it could figure into your exploration of the community and in the research paper as part of the information services section.
