Looking forward to joining this super line-up of public sector leaders at the 2018 Conference Board of Canada conference: Public Sector Transformation 2018: Delivering Digital November 20-21, 2018, and presenting on Toronto Public Library’s transformation and role in Canada creating the world’s best libraries.
As a Creative Commons lifer, I’m thrilled to be able to participate with an amazing group of women, brought together by Kelsey Merkley for Uncommon Women: a conversation in leadership, allies and advocates, and reconciliation at the April Creative Commons Global Summit — so fortunate to have it in Toronto again!
In May, I’ll be on the Digital literacy for all: How can libraries help panel at RightsCon Toronto where this year’s program explores innovation policy in Canada, free expression and protection of global journalism, gender diversity and digital inclusion, encryption and cybersecurity, and other topics relevant to keeping the internet free, open, and secure worldwide.
And in June, at ALA 2018 in New Orleans, I’m participating on the panel: Evidence Based Library and Information Practice is… helping to introduce the techniques and framework of evidence based library and information practice (EBLIP) and offering examples from my practice.
Looking forward to presenting at The Edge Conference in Edinburgh in March on Lending the Internet: Digital Inclusion and Poverty Reduction to share about TPL’s initiative, supported by Toronto’s Poverty Reduction Strategy and a donation from Google Canada, to lend WiFi hotspots to low income households without home internet.
Have you registered for EBLIP 9: Embedding and Embracing Evidence yet? I can’t believe we’re up to nine conferences! It seems like both ages ago and just yesterday that we were working on EBLIP 2 in Edmonton in 2003.
I`m thrilled to be providing the Closing Keynote this year: EBLIP and Everyday Practice for Librarians and our Libraries.
