More on this year’s Keynote!

Bonnie Tijerina will speak on:

Expanding our boundaries in service of our values

The issues arising from data-centric technological development has cast a spotlight on the values and roles of librarianship and brought us into the center of information policy, privacy and intellectual freedom conversations. Some of our new roles fit clearly within the confines of our libraries and involve making minor changes to what we do. Others involve rethinking how we engage with our communities or require us to work beyond our traditional walls with new partners. Bonnie Tijerina, currently a researcher working on library-related projects at a think tank in New York City, will talk about the work of Data & Society, her projects, and her thinking on the impact the field can have in today’s world.
