K01 - Data Violence: Dignity, Discrimination, and Algorithmic Identity
*WATCH THE KEYNOTE FOR FREE!

Today, our “data doubles”—algorithmically-generated, computation-friendly versions of our identities produced by and through digital data—present new challenges for social justice. Among these challenges is the problem of promoting dignity and self-respect, values that provide individuals and groups with a sense that their identities and experiences are valuable and their goals are worth pursuing. For vulnerable or marginalized populations, dignity and self-respect can be undermined by violent actions, symbols, or cultural ideas promoted through mass media, law and policy, or—increasingly—the design of data-intensive systems that seek to sort, evaluate, and rank people according to opaque or biased criteria.  

In this talk, I position “data doubles” as sites of potential violence—especially when they conflict with our own moral self-perceptions, ideas, and beliefs in ways that implicate our dignity. Through an examination of 1) historical human rights abuses perpetrated through population data, 2) current critical discussions of surveillance, algorithms, and data ethics, and 3) the experiences of transgender women navigating systems that fail to account for their particular identities and bodies, I show how institutionalized and other biases work in and through data-driven systems to deprive certain people of what philosopher John Rawls called “the social bases of self-respect.”

Many users turn to search engines first, yet often miss their own library’s collections – because today search engines generally stop at the library home page, hours and events.

S079 - Availability of Freely Available Articles From Gold, Green, Rogue, and Pirated Sources: how do library knowledge bases stack up?
A recent bibliometrics study found that 54% of 4.6 million scientific papers from peer-reviewed journals indexed in Scopus during the years 2011-2013 could be downloaded for free on the Internet in April of 2014 (Archambault, et al. 2014). Increasingly, authors and researchers are using more-and-less legal scholarly article sharing services to "take back the literature," or even just to access it more conveniently (Bohannon, 2016). The objective of this study was to evaluate a manageable sample of journal articles across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities for their availability via open access (gold and green), as well as through rogue or pirated versions. Attendees will gain a greater appreciation of the extent of freely available articles through Google Scholar, Google, ResearchGate, and Sci-Hub, and will be challenged to consider how libraries can respond to this major disruption to the scholarly communication ecosystem.

S101 - Let’s think – and work – outside the box. Literally.
Panelists will discuss libraries’ reliance on monolithic ILS/LSPs, workflow solutions that address requirements outside the ILS/LSP, areas where the ILS/LSP is required yet should constitute only a small component of overall workflow and budget and new services that may emerge in a world no longer centered on traditional ILS/LSP workflows.

K02 - Fake news, reliability & questioning: A researcher’s struggle to navigate the new information landscape
*WATCH THE KEYNOTE FOR FREE!

In the past year, we’ve gotten a crash course in ‘fake news,’ ‘alternative facts,’ disinformation, confusion, propaganda, and media overwhelm. This isn’t just a philosophical issue for us, but one that strikes at the core of what we do. How does this affect our daily work as curators and creators of information? As a veteran researcher, I’m facing new challenges in my information search and evaluation processes. There are twin feelings of overwhelm and urgency given the rapidity with which stories seem to surface and fade, and the sheer volume of what seem to be very critical stories emerging daily. At the same time, emerging news is often difficult to triangulate and I sometimes find myself reading sources with which I’m unfamiliar and not trusting that a story getting picked up by mainstream news is verification of its reliability. In this presentation, I will share the challenges of developing and publishing research across different frequencies: Twitter, bi-weekly newsletter, blogging, policy briefs, academic journals. I will discuss the evolving information landscape and its impacts on information collection, vetting, and sense-making.
