Annual Conference Session
From digital literacy and inclusion to accessibility, security, and access to infrastructure, information policy issues affect not only information professionals and institutions but also the patrons and communities they serve. In this session, noted scholars Paul T. Jaeger and Natalie Greene Taylor will draw on their new ALA Neal-Schuman book to familiarize participants with the foundations of information policy. They'll also discuss the ways in which it intersects with human rights, civil rights, and professional ethics. Participants will gain a better understanding of the impacts of information policy on their activities as library professionals, improving their ability to serve as effective advocates on behalf of their institutions, patrons, and communities.
