How do we strike a balance between our right to know, and what is known
about us in regards to privacy? How are libraries responding to the
increasing complexities of data tracking and desires for data-informed
services and marketing? According to Jonathan Hernández, associate
researcher in the Library and Information Institute at National Autonomous
University of Mexico, “The library must remain as a neutral and diverse
place in which our freedoms are protected.” 


The very important and timely topic of privacy is the focus of the Library
2.016 Worldwide Virtual Conference <http://www.library20.com/> , co-founded
by the School of Information at San Jose State University (SJSU). During the
online event, scheduled for Wednesday, March 16, 2016, from 12 – 3 p.m.
Pacific Daylight Time, you’ll hear from five exceptional keynote speakers:
Hernández; Jamie Larue, director of the American Library Association’s (ALA)
Office of Intellectual Freedom; Deborah Caldwell-Stone, deputy director of
the ALA Office of Intellectual Freedom; Alison Macrina, director of the
Library Freedom Project; and Lee Rainie, director of Internet, science, and
technology research at Pew Research Center. 


In addition, information professionals and encouraged to share their
expertise and present at the conference. Presentation proposals
<http://www.library20.com/page/call-for-proposals>  are now being accepted.
Presentations should be at least 15 minutes in length, and all sessions must
be completed (including Q&A) within 25 minutes. Slots are limited, and may
fill before the final March 11, 2016 deadline for proposals.

Collaborate and is free to attend. Advanced registration
