Website with project information and results of a research project. Researchers of Tomorrow (RoT) was a three-year study, sponsored by the British Library (BL) and the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). The study tracked a cohort of 70 young 'Generation Y' doctoral students (the children of the 'Baby Boomers'). The students were based at UK colleges and universities. The study used quantitative context-setting surveys and qualitative research to examine the students' information-seeking behaviour, analysing their habits in online and physical research environments and assessing their usage of library and information sources on- and off-line.
