Formulas for Reflection: Using Safiya Umoja Noble’s Algorithms of Oppression to Engage Student Learners
We read Noble’s recent book with a small group of students through USU's Honors Book Lab program this spring, discussing how human-designed information technologies reinforce racism, sexism, and other oppressions. What emerged from this critical examination of our information seeking practices, our assumptions of neutrality, and our cognition of the algorithmic forces that shape our view of the information landscape – and of the people around us?

Protecting Patron Privacy in the Digital Age
As increasingly diverse sets of data emerge about library patrons, and libraries depend on that data to demonstrate value and effectiveness, a conversation has started in the library community about how we educate, organize, and engage patrons in their right to confidentiality and privacy in our libraries. This lightning talk will discuss ethical and practical implications for conversations around privacy and technologies of surveillance in libraries. Attendees will walk away with defined terms and available resources on the topic to share with others.
