Student Technology Conference | January 30, 2016
Everyone is invited to participate in these events, designed to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing among information professionals worldwide. Each three-hour event will consist of a series of short keynote speakers plus 10-15 crowd-sourced thirty-minute presentations.
The School of Information at San José State University is the founding conference sponsor. Register as a member of the Library 2.0 network to be kept informed of future events. Recordings from previous years are available under the Archives tab above and the Library 2.0 YouTube channel.
What are the roles and responsibilities of libraries regarding the protections of intellectual freedom, privacy, free speech, information access, and freedom of the press? Are these still core values of the library profession, and if so, how are libraries and librarians responding to the increasing complexities of data tracking and desires for data-informed services and marketing?
In this focused conversation on privacy, we'll hear from a variety of library professionals as well as keynote Speakers: Lee Rainie; Director, Internet, Science, and Technology Research; Pew Research Center; Jamie Larue, Director, Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association; Jonathan Hernández, Associate Researcher, Library and Information Institute, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM); Deborah Caldwell-Stone, Deputy Director, Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association; and Alison Macrina, Director, Library Freedom Project.
