Factotem : What Is Information Access For? Feinberg, Melanie
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the UBC iSchool. In this talk, I seek to understand what we mean by information access, and what it means to provide information access in a responsible way. Specifically, I examine the idea of facts. How should providers of information deal with facts? To examine this question, I consider the 2017 protest slogan “Librarians for Facts.” What does this slogan really mean? Ultimately, I suggest that information providers need to determine what they are for, and orient information access mechanisms toward that goal.
