Practicing Freedom in a Changing World

Practicing Freedom in a Changing World

Talk given at the Wisconsin Association of Academic Librarians annual conference, 2014. Abstract: What does it mean to be information literate in a world in which “publish” is a button, publishers and authors are suing libraries for sharing too much, and every week brings us new revelations about how the state is collecting and mining our digital lives? What can we do to help our students make sense of their world and prepare them to engage with information after they graduate? We will explore ways to invite students to hack the library and claim it as their own meaning-maker space as we explore the values of libraries – and how those values could change the world for the better.
