Carterette Series Webinar on Information Access and Civil Discourse - April 1, 2015

From the Georgia Library Association Carterette Series comes another fantastic free webinar, open to all:

I Reject Your Reality and Substitute My Own: Information Access and Civil Discourse in the Digital Age

Wednesday, April 1, 2015
2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)
Register at

In this webinar, Brandy Horne will outline different factors that can influence, and even hinder, our ability to access information in a digital environment, and she’ll discuss how the information we do access can ultimately impact our ability to engage in civil discourse.  Finally, addressing some possibly conflicting directives from ALA documents, such as the Core Values of Librarianship and the Code of Ethics, we’ll look at how libraries might strike a balance between showing patrons how to find the information they need and helping them to find the information they want.

About the Presenter:
Brandy Horne works in the Gregg-Graniteville Library at the University of South Carolina Aiken as an Instruction and Reference Librarian, and she is currently the Secretary of the CSRA Library Association. In addition to presenting at the Georgia COMO conference three years in a row, Brandy was a speaker at TEDx Telfair Street in Augusta in 2014.

Can't make it to the live show? That's okay. The session will be recorded and available on the Carterette Series Webinars site for later viewing.
