Apr'15: I Reject Your Reality and Substitute My Own: Information Access and Civil Discourse in the Digital Age (Carterette Series)

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)


In this webinar, Brandy Horne will outline different factors that can influence, and even hinder, our ability to access information in a digital environment, and she’ll discuss how the information we do access can ultimately impact our ability to engage in civil discourse.  Finally, addressing some possibly conflicting directives from ALA documents, such as the Core Values of Librarianship and the Code of Ethics, we’ll look at how libraries might strike a balance between showing patrons how to find the information they need and helping them to find the information they want.
