We have more access to more information than ever before, while others have more access to data about us than ever before.

Librarians, long the patron saint of information, have a crucial role to play in helping guide the conversation. In this talk, danah boyd will weave together her research on youth culture with her analysis of the “big data” phenomenon to discuss the role of libraries and librarians in a data-soaked world.

Soon to Be Famous Author Project - How to Make It Happen Program Moscone Convention Center
2001 (W)
Description :

The Soon to be Famous Illinois Author Project, winner of the 2015 John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award, demonstrates the impact and expertise of Illinois libraries. It also highlights the library support for authors. When Illinois library staffers started this project, asking Illinois libraries to submit work of self-published authors, they thought forty entries would mean success. The project received 103 nominations from public, school, and academic libraries across the state. Twenty-three librarians from different types of libraries served as judges. This is not only the story of library impact, it is the story about library power built on collaboration.
Program supported by the ALA Digital Content Working Group, PLA, Reaching Across Illinois Library System, Illinois Heartland Library System, Illinois Library Association and the Chicago Public Library.
