Spring Conference Presentations

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.

Being Evidence Based in Library and Information Practice

2016-09-29_11-24-36The amazing Drs. Denise Koufogiannakis and Alison Brettle have gathered together a super group of evidence based library and information practice researchers and practitioners in this new publication from Facet Publishing (Facet is part of CILIP, the UK library association): Being Evidence Based in Library and Information Practice. I’m proud to have contributed along with Dr. Becky Cole on the chapter on Public Libraries. Here’s the link to the OA version of the chapter because of course I arranged in my publishing contract the ability to make it openly available!
